Can someone direct me to a doc on what should and should not be
backported? Until now, I have (naively) not cared about all this
release management stuff, coming from Arch anyway where the "latest is
the greatest". Also, I assumed that whoever was pushing my patches
would handle all such stuff, and anyway they would be a better judge
of backporting than me. I think I should understand this for the time
when I start exercising the commit privilege.

In my simplistic view, although e.g not all undefined behaviors are
exploitable, I still consider such things worthy of a backport as they
don't introduce any new features, and fix bugs. Similarly, I consider
all clean, simple bug fixes worthy of a backport.
