In this we agree - tag v14.0.0, branch v14.0.x.

Three months seemed like a good time. The good news is that builds for armel 
and armhf are now significantly faster. Tim recently announced a change in 
the mirror system. All this should speed up the process of releasing a new 
version. The question therefore is whether we will have enough capacity to 
fixing bugs. We can do this, we will assume that three months for release 
14.0.1 and in the process we'll see if that's enough time.
