Yes, it would be nice to make this part more explicit.

It's a complicated situation, because Ubuntu/Canonical isn't
supporting 3.5 globally, but just for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Similar notes
go for 3.4 in RHEL.

Here's a good question: Where do we want these bugs to end up? Would
we like to see them reported in our infrastructure, or are we more
than happy to have them reported to the distros and then upstreamed if
(and only if) they are still relevant to a modern release?
