The link need only be valid when the first 1.14.0-* prerelease is
announced (to announce@, not just to dev@); until then, 1.14.html is
work in progress. 1.A.x branches are created after alphas but before
betas. It's not likely that we'll do a 1.14.0-alpha1, and furthermore,
I'd rather risk a broken link in an alpha release than in a beta or RC
release. Therefore, I'd err on the side of making the link point to
branches/1.14.x _now_ with a TODO reminding us to point the link to
trunk if we do an alpha release…

… but in the great scheme of things, this is a pretty minor issue, and
there's more than one way to peel an orange. Whoever writes the patch
will get to decide.

Cheers,

Daniel
