are there any cons of having 4.14.7 in one of the next point releases and KDE5 via backports for jessie?
I understand that in general new upstream releases are not supposed to pushed in in point releases. In this case it makes perfect sense for me though and there are other examples which do it as well, e.g. chromium pushes even bigger changes into point releases
rd@blackbox:~$ rmadison chromium|grep jessie|grep " amd64"
chromium | 41.0.2272.118-1 | jessie | amd64, i386
chromium | 42.0.2311.135-1~deb8u1 | jessie-p-u | amd64, i386
chromium | 42.0.2311.135-1~deb8u1 | jessie-security | amd64, i386
