As a general rule, all those marked with RE22 (RE<latest>) yes;
usually fixes remain in "test" as long as they're in HEAD only,
and move to "release" when they get to RE<latest>.  There might
be motivated exceptions.

I'm unable to answer.

I'm glad you pose the problem, because for some of them I'm
in the same situation.  We usually build our packages for
customers, so it's not a big deal to use CVS code or at least
selected patches, but some customers don't like to see non-"stable"
code in production...
