 I'm mostly thinking about finding out to which stable branches it applies.
Currently, contributors rarely go through the effort of checking that. So the
question is: is it worth your while to ask contributors to check to which stable
branches a fix is applicable?

 I've added "Fixes: <sha1>" tags a few times, but then I realized it doesn't
actually help a lot.
