Done in r1870317.

Also in r1870317, made mention of get-deps.sh a link.

I went ahead and pointed both links to branches/1.14.x; currently
there is no explicit revision number in the links because that
information isn't known yet. Perhaps these should eventually point at
the tag? Then again, that would be useless for pre-release
announcements/testing.

I'm replying to several related emails below...

The only other example, in the 1.18 release notes, was not in any
special format. I went ahead and kept this the same way. Obviously if
special formatting should be used, that is easy to do.

Done in r1870318.

Ah, that is incredibly convenient! Thanks for mentioning it. I went
ahead and made a note of that in my notes...

Cheers,
