Re: Grace period for 1.13 users to upgrade to 1.14?

In my opinion, although it's "nice" when everyone has clarity on all details of the process, it's just not important to decide this level of detail in advance. It's a fuzzy line and we'll make a reasonable decision if it happens, which it likely won't.

Re. issuing fixes as patches, I think there's no precedent and no grounds for doing so this time. The option of doing so in future for the general case should be raised in a separate thread.
