It's a stable branch, so there isn't _that_ much of a risk in pointing
to branches/1.14.x/INSTALL_at_HEAD: even if it contains unreleased changes,
at least one developer has reviewed them and considered them suitable
for backport.

How so? Even for pre-releases, we create tags before announcing them
to announce@. As to anything that may happen on dev@, people subscribed
to dev@ can be assumed to know their way to the INSTALL file, broken
links notwithstanding. ☺
