Stable branches are maintained by the _upstream_ stable-maint team[1]
where most members might be from (two) distros but please note that
all PTLs are also included and there are members who are not from a

Please consider that stable branches are also needed for the security
fixes and we, as a responsible upstream project, need to provide that
with or without distros. Stable branch was a master branch just few
months ago and it inherited all the bugs present there, so everybody
fixing a gate bug on master should consider backporting to stable at
the same time. It can't be stable-maint-only responsiblity e.g.
stable-maint doesn't have +2 in devstack stable/* or in tempest (now
brancheless, so master) branches.
