Ok, whichever of the outstanding reviews with syntax changes gets its
approval first, gets its conversion rule updated to 2.15.16 (did not
notice the bump of PATCH_LEVEL in VERSION, but it's pointless redoing
the reviews because of that), then pushed to dev/staging in a form
suitable for bijection.  Then I wait for the official version bumb to
2.15.17, and do the next ruleset if it gets approved until then.

Lost about two days of work in trying to figure out procedures and
adhering to them.
