No, the stable tags are parsed by the bin/get-pick-list.sh script (run
it with a stable branch checked out).

One gotcha about the stable tag in Mesa (in contrast to e.g. the one in
the Linux kernel) is that by default, it only applies to the last stable
branch, i.e. currently the 11.0 branch. If you wanted the patch to be
backported to the 10.6 branch as well, you'd need to specify something like

CC: "10.6 11.0" <mesa-stable at lists.freedesktop.org>
