No just one review per package: the review would initially be for 
rawhide (devel) and then once accepted branches can be request for F-8 
and F-9.

Not really - the package would be backported as necessary - ideally with 
minimal modifications to the current and older release.

Any particular package in mind?

For Haskell I guess the main difference might be the version ghc typically.
