Well... if the update is in the same branch, I push it to F<stable>, too
(after having had it in rawhide for some time). For example, 1.3.4->1.3.5
will get into F7.

Major version releases do usually not get into F<stable>, unless there
is a very convincing reason. For example, 1.3.5->1.4.0 would get into
rawhide, but probably not into F7.

That's just my style, however.
