Ketil, you have a point, 

however, Mike is right, fixes should be back-ports, or if you fix a
problem in the older release, you should fix it in the master branch as
well, or show that it does not exist in the master branch. This is the
only way it is possible to keep development under control.

We really need to be sure that whatever is fixed in older releases is
also fixed in the newer. Yes, this is more work for you but hey, I'm
also doing this stuff in my spare time.
