Yeah we had discussion in this subject as well during sprint.
I think we agreed that preferred way would be proposed-stable-updates or
stable-updatesa way instead of backports.

Other issues for me is that those agents are written with different languages
what causing a bit of overhead with the whole endeavour.
Ruby, GO, Python with their whole dev ecosystems there maybe need for updating
some libs before updating agents so it may become a bit tricky task to do.
