There's a stable git tree maintained by Zbigniew, Lukas and friends,
that carries backports for the stable releases. Most vendors should
consider following that repo I figure.

I try to help the backporting business by tagging the commits I
personally consider backport-worthy with "git notes" and the
"Backport:" field.
