That's also what I had in mind.
I can see with release people if you want
(usually Albert sends reminders, Mario suggested to see first with multimedia team?)

I would branch 15.04 from commit b93afb just before your 1st refactoring change,
cherry-pick some fixes that came after (448f04, fe438f, 79269e, 9bd005, cabe1e, 479b76)...

We should also provide build instructions (KF5 dependencies)
and even maybe packages (sunab? it seems Arch & Mint have done the work?)
(and what about Jenkins: can we get it building the branch, and get the output?)

What about discussing this on IRC (freenode #kdenlive)?
As a start, I propose you to fill the following poll to arrange the meeting
oops, didn't precise "France/Germany time", maybe not very convenient for overseas people?
In the meantime I'll try to hang around more regularly on the channel...
