Yes, exactly. We have a well-automated process for reasing updates for the latest version (2.9a). We also have a fairly well automated process (it gets better as we do more of it) for issuing updates for prior versions (such as 2.8). The hard part is identifying things that are important enough to fix, and fixes that will both work in that older version, and not prevent if from being able to grow forward if desired. We'll handle the job of getting the files into the right update streams.
So, for instance, if you were to submit contributions to 2.9a, you might recommend "and XXX and YYY, along with #2425 (say) from the 2.9a stream, should also be put in the 2.8 update stream". That would be a real service!
