You stripped my response text completely and you're basically
missing the point.
Upstream developers often do provide minimal updates but
distributions (especially Debian) fall way behind the releases
which leads to insanely large update gaps. They try to "fix" that
by back-porting patches claiming that these old but patched
releases are more "stable" (without giving a clear definition of
IMO this approach neither is stable nor secure. Repeating this
"stable" claim over and over does not make it become true. And it
wastes a lot of time.
