This would certainly help distributions which want to stay with
Evolution 2.32 for
a while.. My only concern here is, while cherry-picking patches how
would we take
care of the translations and documentation ? Are we adhering to the freezes in
the gnome-2-32 branch (am not calling this a latest stable branch) ?

If the documentation and translations are taken care of, should the
freezes matter ?
