	Good question - that branch is libreoffice-3-4 and you have it about
right; yes. For new features we need some double (or more) code review
and we use that very sparingly; so far I've only seen one go in (fixing
the document shadows).

	That process is a bit slower; some fixes are committed to master, and
then cherry-picked back; but in general fixes go to libreoffice-3-4 and
then are merged back to master (somewhat intermittently). So it is best
to test a libreoffice-3-4 build if possible.
