  I think we need to separate those maintainance releases as they are
not made using the usual upstream process. It's in a sense arbitrary
based on Fedora schedule and bug flow (though I would hope other distro
chime in to suggest their prefered patches to backport in).
  Using a separate directory but keeping the name seems the simplest to
me.

  Nahh ... :-) there is far more workforce for libvirt than libxml2
I'm still struggling with the backlog needed to process before making
a very needed release there, but that's completely different, the
dynamic of the two projects have nothing in common :-)
