Comment 13 for bug 227464

Sounds good. I think my point is really that people mix up backports and SRU, and justifying a request for a package backport by needing security fixes is wrong, unless it turns out that it is too difficult to backport those fixes. I don't see anyone requesting any of the new features here. So I disagree with Mathias's comment, and we should follow https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates instead. I do acknowledge that it is faster to get a backport out than a SRU though, which is a little unfortunate. It would be ideal to have the SRU out first, so that people are not "tricked" into installing a backport that could cause incompatibility problems.

BTW, the last, "huge" patch contains a lot of cosmetic fixes and changes in comments which should be taken out for the SRU patch (you might wonder why they squeezed all that into a "security fix"). I can take a look at it if that can speed up things.
