I still don't understand this logic.  Why would a defect report in the
fixes branch necessitate a fix in the fixes branch?  If the bug is
serious, you'll want to fix it in all branches.  If it's not very
serious, you'll fix it in master only.  This is independent of the
branch where the bug is found.

I'll prepare builds for both master and 0.25 fixes and check back on
this list before actually submitting anything to Coverity.
