15.05 should definitely not be treated as a "mainline" branch, neither 
in core nor in the packages tree. A security update-focused CC release 
can be expected sometime this year - bumping 3.18 to the latest, 
upgrading core packages and external packages, etc. -, but even without 
a release, the for-15.05 should contain security and bugfixes only. If 
there is a major bug in a package which needs to be fixed, a larger 
version jump can be accepted, but not for just the sake of jumping to 
the latest and shiniest.

(Thanks Karl for bringing this up.)
