Sure. I'm usually merging all bug fixes from 0.6.x into the 0.5.x

If the commit messages are clear, i.e., it is obvious that the changes
are bug fixes, I should be able to find these without problems. If there
is any unclarity on the status of the changes, a list could be helpful.

Whenever I'm preparing a new release from a stable branch, I will go
through the git tree and pick all changes that look like bug fixes (with
more filtering for 0.4.x and 0.3.x to only get critical fixes). With
that list, I'm going to be merging the changes in order into the stable
branch. I would expect that the changes discussed here would fall into
this process for automatic (well, with some manual labor ;-) inclusion
into 0.5.x.
