It is possible to fix non-RC bugs in updates to stable (that are deemed
important enough to be fixed). The maintainer and the (stable) release
managers have to agree with it though.

Taking over maintenance is a good idea. The release managers usually
require bugs to be fixed in testing before approving changes to stable.
