I agree. I would disagree that the patch this thread is on should go to
stable. What's the point of stable if it introduces regressions by
backporting bug fixes for non major bugs.
Every fix I make I consider labeling it for stable. The ones I don't, I
feel the bug fix is not worth the risk of added regressions.
I worry that people will get lazy and stop marking commits for stable
(or even thinking about it) because they know that there's a bot that
will pull it for them. That thought crossed my mind. Why do I want to
label anything stable if a bot will probably catch it. Then I could
just wait till the bot posts it before I even think about stable.
