Re: [opensuse] openSUSE-SU-2016:0145-1: critical: openssh - why patch OpenSSH_6.2p2 and not install OpenSSH_7.1p2?

All,

Just a curiosity. Why patch OpenSSH_6.2p2 in a critical update instead
of updating to OpenSSH_7.1p2? There are not conflicts between the
versions or issues with backwards compatibility. So where is the logic
for patching an old version when you could simply package the new
version as an update?

Adding new version introduces risk of new unknown bugs. This is exact
opposite to the goal of stable release.
