The general policies for release branches apply to this branch. Do you think a certain bugfix should be included in this branch?

  1. Is the fix committed in master? It has to be, unless it's not applicable to master (e.g. code has been rewritten meantime).
  2. Do you have commit permissions? If so, go ahead if you think it's reasonably safe. break;
  3. Can you handle Git yourself? Then you can clone the glibc repository, cherry-pick the appropriate fixes, push your branch out and send a pull request at libc-alpha. break;
  4. Add the glibc_X.Y keyword to the appropriate bug report.
  5. If there is no appropriate bug report, send a request for the fix to be included to libc-alpha.

The release/X.Y/master branch is intended as a rolling release for all distributions to use and contribute fixes to from developmet master.
