For a moment, let's assume Newton isn't released yet because
openstack-manuals hasn't branched yet. I'm working on some significant
beneficial changes to the networking guide that resolve a number of issues
we probably should have addressed a while ago... ideally before the release
of Mitaka... but I couldn't accomplish it and no one else contributes to
this particular content. The networking guide isn't continuously published.
When my changes to it merge in master, they are essentially invisible to
operators until the next release. Operators often run a stable release or
two behind master. Thus, only merging in master (which becomes the next
release) limits the audience of the changes. Backporting such changes to
the prior release (if they apply) makes them visible to a wider audience.
Furthermore, this particular patch resolves a number of issues with the
Mitaka content. Finally, doesn't the same issue of translation apply to
continuous-release content such as the admin guide?
