The solution for that is to finally allow multi-release update

we push the exact same security fix to 3 releases, it should not need
separate testing for each.
While the package and changes to it might be the same accross branches,
that doesn't mean you can test one branch and know the others work.
The problem is all the other packages your package depends on (which
may be different versions or have different patches, etc), along with
compiler and toolchain differences that could result in different
behavior between branches.
