2.22.1 Possible

Is there any reason why such significant things didn't go into 2.22.1
and 2.22.2 and so on as they were found and resolved? (with matching
ports to trunk, of course) Is the release process quite cumbersome? or
is there a concern for flooding downstreams with too many releases? or
what?

In any case, +1 for a patch release if there are known good tested
fixes in the branch ready and waiting.

Excuse my curiosity!

Fred.
