Well, perhaps I have been confused by the amount of stuff cherry-picked
into stable/2.14 (the source of the cherry-picks gets lost in the branch
graph), combined with a slowdown of development in master.  That makes
it appear like a lot more is happening in stable/2.14 when in fact it is
merely catching up with previous developments in master.
