I'd like to point out that if a bug has been fixed in trunk/develop
but the fix has not been merged to release/master, the bugfix is not
delivered to users and is as good as not fixed. If you fixed a bug in
trunk but didn't find a chance to merge the fix to release for years
then you clearly don't have the resources to properly maintain the
library. "It's been fixed in trunk" is not an excuse.
