I've only ever worked on one open source project where I was not supposed to backport my fixes to the maintenance release branches and that is Plone. For Plone we have someone responsible for back-portting that stuff in bulk. It makes his job harder if we manually back-port fixes as then he has to be more selective with the patches he backports. Thanks Hanno! But my point is it is pretty standard behaviour to have to backport fixes to all actively maintained branches. - Rocky -- Rocky Burt ServerZen Software -- http://www.serverzen.com News About The Server (blog) -- http://www.serverzen.net
