Currently RT developers maintain a series of RT releases based off various stable versions which add the RT patches on top. Once the RT patches have been merged into mainline the baseline stable releases will have the patches however we need to figure out how the testing will be handled, currently the stable maintainers rely on other people and organizations to do the bulk of their testing. We also need to ensure that the stable maintainers are OK with accepting fixes for RT specific issues like unbounded latencies, currently that seems OK with the stable rules as they are applied but it's not clearly OK for the documented rules.

What are our plans here?
