I'd much rather have you working than not!  I'm glad we've been able to
clarify the policy so all will understand.

2.12.3 is the *released* stable version.

2.13.61 is the *released* unstable version, built from the stable/2.14
branch that will serve as the basis for the next stable release candidate.

2.15.0 is the version of the master branch and of the *future* unstable
released version. There is not yet a 2.15.0 release, and won't be until
after 2.14 is release, IIUC.

2.14.0 does not yet exist.  The version of the stable/2.14 branch is
currently 2.13.62.

This is exactly correct.

fixed_2_15_0 means that a patch has been placed in the master branch.
backport means that it should be backported to the stable/2.14 branch.  Once
I backport it, it will get a fixed_2_13_x tag.  Once version 2.13.x is
released, it's available for verification.

The verification for 2.15.0 will be handled by the regtest comparision at
the time 2.15.0 is released.

So, bug squad, your task is to look at issues awaiting verification that
have a fixed_2_13_61 tag, and verify those.  Ignore those with only
fixed_2_15_0, and ignore (for the moment) those with fixed_2_13_62.  Once
2.13.62 is released, you'll verify those with fixed_2_13_62, and ignore
those with fixed_2_13_63.

Let me know if you have any questions.
