    No, he's saying that when upstream is broken for the same reason as
    stable is, it seems wise to:

    - report upstream
    - fix your local system
    - fix any systems you are responsible for
    - fix upstream
    - only then fix stable.

    That way, the user doesn't get the disconcerting experience of getting
    and then losing the fix when upgrading first to the next stable
    version, then to the next upstream version.

    Makes sense?

    Hope that helps,
    Jonathan
