psychological level, as the heavy development of new features has in the
past mostly taken place on the master branch, it'd make it clearer to devs
that the heavy feature development takes place there, and not on the 2.14
Alternatively, we could branch off 2.14 LTR very early on, like in a
month's time. That would give a preparatory period for new packages for
