What are the pros of moving from 2.1.x to a newer release? What are
the possible issues? Is there a soname bump? API/ABI changes? The bug
just asks for it to rebase and doesn't state why it would be useful.
In general you should outline things like does it have features that
are useful, does it have functionality that is needed to interact with
new features of some public tool or infrastructure (say signed pushes
for kernel upstream, some new functionality in github etc).
