Backporting is about applying patches to older branches.
For example, if you commit a fix to master, it won't be available in the
next Mono 2.10.x release, because Mono 2.10 is on its own branch (which was
created / branched from master a while ago), like each major version. So, if
your fix was really important, you'd want to backport it to the 2.10 branch.
