It is not ucommon for fixes to be backported to the maintenance 
branches.  Sometimes we roll those into a maintenance release and 
sometimes not

You can use svn merge to merge fixes and then run tests. Then post a 
patch or just the merge command to the issue if the merge was 
automatic.  Check the patch available checkbox and a committer will look 
at the change.  When merging changes to the branches you may want to 
consider the stability of the branch. Typically fixes and minor 
improvements are o k, but large features are not.  If I merge a change 
to 10.2 I typically will also merge it to 10.3 as well  to allow upward 
mobility without regression.

Hope that answers your question.
