    135135for you. However, there are two issues to be aware of: 
    136136 
    137  * Sometimes we may need to make changes to old versions of libraries, 
    138    as we try to avoid making interface changes within GHC stable 
    139    branches and upstream development may have moved on since a GHC 
    140    stable branch was created. When this happens it is up to you whether 
    141    the changes are sent upstream as normal (and maintained in an upstream 
    142    branch), or whether they are left only in the GHC repository. 
    143  
    144137 * For libraries that are shipped with GHC, we need to have releases of 
    145138   libraries that can build with that GHC. There may be no suitable 
     
    151144   normally have only the minimal changes necessary since the previous 
    152145   release). 
     146 
     147 * Sometimes we may need to make changes to old versions of libraries, 
     148   as we try to avoid making interface changes within GHC stable 
     149   branches and upstream development may have moved on since a GHC 
     150   stable branch was created. When this happens it is up to you whether 
     151   the changes are sent upstream as normal (and maintained in an upstream 
     152   branch), or whether they are left only in the GHC repository. Note that 
     153   if they are made only the GHC repository then we will probably need to 
     154   make a release from the GHC repository, as per the previous point.
