My goal is to get stuff into whatever line of Emacs will be a permanent
part of all future major release lines (not necessarily including minor
or "point" releases along an already-released line).  Usually trunk
serves this purpose, and my assumption had been that trunk is always a
safe place for a change (where as X.Y branch *might* be a safe place).

But I admit, I'm not really sure how we do this.  Is there policy
documentation somewhere on it?  I looked on the project pages and in the
tree and didn't see anything obvious.  (etc/CONTRIBUTE isn't quite it.)

Thanks for the reminder!  I can fix the ChangeLogs to be that way.  (It
should be both of us, really; I've seen that style before.)
