Every developer who fix a bug is responsible for pushing the fix into
all appropriate branches (master, libreoffice-3-5, or even older
branches). We do not do any regular merges between branches. Also we do
not have any dedicated person who would take care of this. 

The idea is that people are responsible. Authors of fixes know most
details about them. They could best decide how the fix is important,
dangerous, and where it is needed. If they are unsure, they could always
ask for review and opinion from other developers on irc or the mailing

Of course, people do mistakes. They might underestimate the importance
or just forgot to push a fix. In this case, I expect that the reporter
will complain that a fix is still missing. We have many betas, release
candidates, and bug fix releases, so there are many possibilities to add
the fix later.
