 Since r9883 we're using the template name instead of the stylesheet name
 to let people override the companion stylesheet from their child theme.
 But in the `bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/css/twentyfifteen.css`
 stylesheet, the comment at the top is saying :

 ''If you are running as a child theme of twentyfifteen and wish to use
 this stylesheet then please copy it to buddypress/css/ or community/css/
 in your child theme root and rename the file to match your child theme
 i.e. in child theme named 'twentyfifteen-child', twentyfifteen.css would

 If you do so, the `/themes/twentyfifteen-child/buddypress/css
 /twentyfifteen-child.css` will not override the bundle stylesheet, it
 needs to be `/themes/twentyfifteen-child/buddypress/css/twentyfifteen.css`
 for it to work.

 I've also noticed the `bp-templates/bp-
 legacy/buddypress/css/twentyfourteen.css` was not including this comment.
 Maybe it would be a good idea to :
 - include the comment just like it's the case for twentyfifteen
 - or create a page in the codex and add a link to it in both companion
 stylesheet, so that if the rule is changing, we can deal with it from this
 codex page..
