Well, I may have spoken too quickly here, there may be projects which don't work like this, but in any case they'd better have a solid frontporting procedure for the health of their trunk/master code I guess. > It's not a requirement for contributors though, patches on any version > is always very welcome and will be back/font-ported as needed by a > committer. As a side note, frequent contributors to 2.4.x (only) are very likely to know trunk code quite quickly, and are also very welcome if they want to become committers. > > > Regards, > Yann.
