	Quite - the logical consequence of not doing that is either:

	a) cherry picking to a diverging branch without build testing
or	b) having to build test a fix on both master and libreoffice-3-4

	There is a lot of angst about non-building master at the moment ;-) so
I assume you are asking for b) - which, since it is rather more resource
hungry will result in a lower quality product, and more de-motivated
developers :-) [ or not ? ]

	Personally, I can see the attraction to doing one-shot merges of -3-4
to master, after a build test from time to time. I imagine this is why
the TSC agreed this, but lets re-visit it this Thursday.

	Having said that - the one-off horrific delay caused by the (lack of)
m106 merge, and thus the big set of missing fixes to master is deadly
annoying. Naturally, it is annoying to see work & fixes duplicates too -
I suppose the best way to fix this is to help kendy (and/or whomever)
expedite the m106 merge and back-merge to master - can you help out with
that Bjoern ? indications are that it is at a promising stage anyway.
