Correct. 'backport 3.7' == backport into 3.7.1.  I have done this 
several times already.

We no longer embargo an x.y branch during the release process, which is 
much nicer.  If you wanted something in 3.7.0 you would have to mark as 
release blocker and be very persuasive that he should cherry-pick into 
the 3.7.0 release branch.
