Did I really say that? I would not mind making a 2.1.4 release, even.

However, I don't think patches need to be backported to both 2.2 and
2.3 on a regular basis. Instead, if a patch seems "important enough"
to whoever commits it, that person should back-port it right away, so
that the release process for 2.2.4 does not involve a huge amount of

If the PBF wants to have 2.2 more active than that, they would need to
nominate a maintainer for it, IMO.
