Yes, a direct import is fine provided the change has been properly tested. Or notify me and I can make an adhoc snapshot before the fork to include the last fixes. After the fork has happened I will also go through all changes pushed to hs since our last integration. At this point I will make sure all P1-P3 bug fixes are pushed to the fork as well.
