Do such fixes get > backported to latest stable branch? Sometimes. Basically a developer (TNF member) can make a request for changes to be applied to the branch. Bug fixes to packages can be pulled up, and sometimes micro versions that really only have bug fixes, but we don't allow ABI changes. If there's a fix, that often happens, and when there is a new version with a fix, there often isn't a fix, because itt's a lot of effort and mostly people are doing this because they want to. ANd, we have a notion that if you submit a pullup request you must have tested it and are responsible for breakage. So, if you can identify what needs to change to the branch, essentially posting a series of "cvs up -jx -jy Z" lines to make the branch work, that would be very useful. Even if there is no pullup resulting, that mesage will be useful to others.
