Personally, I only use master and the distro I mainly care about
(Arch) is on the latest stable release, so the importance of backports
for me is low. I also view FFmpeg as something for which it is best to
be on master due to its nature, so philosophically as well I have
little interest in backports.

However, if it reduces work for you, or others who backport, please
tell me whenever you review whether something I fixed should be
backported, and which release branch to push to. I just feel that
these are best done by those who have higher interest in it - after
all, work is best done by those who are motivated to do it.

Alternatively, we can just continue with the status quo from my end: I
work on master, release and backport business handled by others.
