I support that idea. I will have to create an R14-alpha partition or VM, but that is doable.

We would have to work on backporting patches from the main trunk when they apply to directly R14-alpha (almost exclusively bug fixes only), but we've been through this before with Conversely, any patch directly applicable to R14-alpha gets concurrently merged into trunk.

Fortunately, there will be no renaming patches backported that we have to reverse before merging into R14-alpha. All renaming patches stay in main trunk.

Two branches will help us focus on not introducing new bugs into R14.0.0. Frankly, I'm getting pretty beat up with all the bug reports I keep filing. I don't mind filing the reports, but we need to get our heads back above the water with respect to R14.0.0.

When ready we simply declare the R14-alpha branch to be the R14-RC1 branch, then RC2, etc.
