Honestly, git format-patch (or even more convenient proper packaging tools like Debian's git-buildpackages "pq") make it a trivial operation to get one or several upstream fixes, it's not more work (usually less) than packaging an entire new upstream release. Bugs that affect the tarball are a tad harder, but adding rm -f src/journal/audit_type-to-name.h src/udev/keyboard-keys-from-name.gperf to the build script until we get 221 isn't rocket science either. So I agree that maintaining more branches and upstream releases would cause a lot of low-benefit work. I'd much rather get some distro-side testing before we do an upstream release (see my other reply).
