Beyond just the CVE changes there are other changes such as the fix for PR
56480 that people want in a 2.2.x release.  Some Subversion users are still
needing to use 2.2.x for reasons that aren't terribly important to go into here.

I've been patiently waiting for this release to happen, but it's been nearly a
month now since the original intent to roll email came out.

I'd do the rolling myself but I'm not 100% clear on what needs to happen.  So
if someone can do a little hand holding I'll be happy to do the release myself.
 I'm generally familiar with how the ASF does releases since I do the
Subversion release regularly.  So this would be entirely about the specifics of
rolling the release.
