After an Inverted Minor Raise

There is some very nice material available on the web (e.g., https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/1m-2m-now-what/) and a few things in print (e.g. Washington Standard) about follow-ups to inverted minors, but there are substantial differences between different sources.

I'm interested in determining if there's a "standard" here (and if it matches BWS, so far as that goes), but also in identifying additional comprehensive treatments.

Not clear what's best to poll (I'll try to revise based on early responses), but let's start with this.

Please assume 15-17 notrumps, inverted raise denying 4cM, and an inverted minor range such that you'd want to accept the invite with a 14-count.

Some stuff = what you'd want to expect that notrump should be at least as good from your side.

Please answer poll with what you think is *standard*. If that differs from your preferred, please explain in a written response.

Please select up to 2 choices.

With a 14-count and some stuff in the side suits, opener bids 2NT (forcing)
With a 14-count and some stuff in the side suits, opener bids the other minor (artificial forcing; 2NT would have been non-forcing)
With a 14-count and some stuff in the side suits, opener makes an ostensibly natural temporizing bid in a new suit (2NT would have been non-forcing)
With a 14-count and some stuff in the side suits, opener bids 3NT (2NT would have been non-forcing)
With a 14-count and some stuff in the side suits, opener bids other (please explain)
