The release manager for 2.15 is responsible for changes to the 2.15 release.
I am the release manager for 2.15, so I would review the changes and we
would talk about how they would impact the stable 2.15 release.
The 2.15 release hasn't been rolled out yet because I'm reviewing failures,
but I hope to get that done this weekend and roll the release.
I will tell you right now that I'm not entirely comfortable adding a new
architecture to a stable release and I will be seeking strong rationale from
you and the community if you make a backport request to add TILE to the
stable 2.15 branch.
