I am not clear on what would be a destiny of this one... bug fixes
usually go into some master and later cherry picked or just merged into
main master...

agree... especially since ubuntu people might introduce their
'improvement' changes (ie changes of maintainer and adding 'support' for
python 100.0 prior to its release), so our ubuntu packaging would
diverge from theirs

how do we tag release/backport specific tags? add it into the version
