Ralf, please don't confuse these things.  I'm perfectly fine and
encourage bugfixing across releases.  What I'm discouraging is version
upgrades for new features or spurious builds for spec fixes and other
unnecessary things that are done across the releases trees, not just on
rawhide.  These are the things that I don't like to see, and these are
the things that lessen the value of a release.
