(ie users want softwares to behave in a known way and new major versions
tend to add behaviour changes and bugs while fixing others). 
Redhat seems to have different policy on the topic though and that's
their choice, now it's up to upstream to decide whether the community
efforts are worth to only benefit one corporate version or a
