I am finding packages that were in BB missing. But they even appear to be 
missing from the "for-14.07" branch on GitHub.

You have missed the earlier move in June 2014 to move the packages from 
svn.openwrt.org to Github and to move only those packages that somebody wants 
to maintain.

Nobody has volunteered to maintain shorewall, so it is still there in the 
"oldpackages" repo (that is still accessible in git.openwrt.org).  See the 
description at: http://git.openwrt.org/?p=packages.git;a=summary

The feed is correctly referenced as "oldpackages" in the BB feeds 

In CC that "oldpackages" feed is commented out by default, in order to avoid 
the non-maintained packages being visible by default: 

You can uncomment oldpackages to get access to those packages in menuconfig, 
but nodoby knows if they still compile ok with the current CC.
