My 2 cents.

Well, I'd say slowly is the operative word.

I certainly wouldn't recommend adding anything too radical to 2.1.x but 
we have to expect that 2.1.x will continue to be the production base of 
choice until about 2.2.1.  Now, I have no idea how many milestones there 
will be but my guess (the folks working on maven would be that 2.2.0 
could be released as soon as January.  Under the release often 
philosophy to me that means that I would expect a 2.1.8 now and a 2.1.9 
at the same time 2.2.0 is released.

However, this is compromised a little bit by the fact that it has been a 
long time since 2.1.7 was released and there is a lot of stuff in 2.1.8-dev.

I guess I would say that it is business as usual with 2.1.x until 2.1.8 
is released.  I would then suggest that only very minor enhancements and 
bug fixes be added.  Hopefully, then 2.1.9 could be the final release on 
the branch.
