Thank you.  If you don't mind I'd prefer to widen the scope a touch  
because 6.2 will eventually go away, and frankly it is probably better  
to look forward than to resurrect an unsupported version.  So I would  
probably state:

Jo's $EMPLOYER has significant interest in longer support for -REL  
versions.  Enough to fund my time supporting the mainstream project.   
What would Jo (or anyone else in a similar situation) need to bring to  
the table in order to provide back to the project?
