Subject Re: Backporting to active branches

That one's on the edge for me. It's trying to work around a bug somewhere
that has caused data loss in prod. So I would lean towards it being a bug

However pulling from my last few filed jiras I would say these are all

Some of them fixed things that we hit in production but they didn't change
correctness or cause the system to be un-usable in the normal case. So I
would classify them as improvements. For me I would want to backport only
for patch releases fixes that fixed severe issues, things that changed
correctness or caused a system to be un-usable.
