    That doesn't even confuse me!

    No, there is no backporting. If you have a bug, fix it in 2.6.12-pre.
    There is no need to maintain that bugfix in your 2.6.13-candidate tree.

    It's still a linear progression of kernel trees. The only thing which
    changes is the types of patches which we put into even releases.
