My rough impression is that if any point releases to 8.2 are made, they
will be created at the behest of a deployment via existing
country-support procedures. Therefore, I suspect your NM-0.7 ticket will
appeal to a larger audience than your 0.6 ticket. 

However, for completeness, you should also be aware that people with
Fedora CVS accounts and access to the joyride drop-boxes can supply new
versions of packages for use with 'yum update' for 8.2. Therefore, while
I am aware of little specific interest in releasing 8.2-bug-fixes before
9.1, it is technically feasible for interested volunteers to do so of
their own accord.

Does this help?
