As a developer and a user I do not, repeat DO NOT, want new features 
backported into gambas stable versiuons ever, repeat EVER!

Critical emergency bug fixes maybe, but fully under BM's control and 
very largely highlighted if it were ever needed.

IMHO Your whole concept of backporting Gambas is ludicrous. very few 
linux applications need to support multiple versions with backporting. 
In fact the only one I can think of is postgresql. Maybe the kernel 
development group should backport eveerything from 5.9.4 to 1.0.0 just 
because someone might need it.

You have the means to backport Gambas if that is what you personally 
desire. As you said "do it youself".
