Thanks Olga, now I get what you mean.
I don't have a strong opinion on this.
On one hand I see why you don't want to put too many patches in the
branches in order to keep things stable.
On the other hand when we do a 0.10.x release with x>0 the users would
like to have as many bugs fixed as possible.

I think this makes sense. +1
