If you're interested in a 2.2.7 Jordi, I'm happy to backport anything
which applies cleanly while we dig into the late 2.3 cycle. I'd
probably want to focus on things which were already fixed earlier in
the 2.3 cycle which can go back relatively easily.  There have been
several larger changes which makes bringing back more recently fixed
bugs slightly more difficult.  If you can come up with a list of bugs
I'm happy to take a look this weekend, assuming my health holds up.

Making a release is very straightforward and automated though, and
we're definitely overdue for another 2.2 while we get 2.4 solidified.

Happy to do so.

Sure.  I didn't have any huge features on the horizon and am very
interested in getting some remaining colorization bugs fixed, but that
could happen either in 2.3 or 2.5 with backports to 2.4.
