I of course meant a PR against master. Older branches are generally never touched, except maybe if something serious happens like a big security hole.

          be merged.

        From a quick
          look, your patch seems to be much more focused and thus more
          likely to get merged. Can you open a pull request on GitHub?

    Could somebody possibly help me understand the philosophy behind
    patching older releases as I have been wondering about this. 


    For example would this patch against 3.2.8 be applied against the
    mono-3.2.8-branch? Or is master only ever updated?


    If the branch is updated would the installers for Mono 3.2.8 be
    updated and if they would be updated then how would the versioning
