Contributions of updates are welcome. Debian (and Ubuntu Artful) are
currently at 3.3.7. If you want 3.3.13, first contribute that to Debian,
and Ubuntu will autosync any updates to Artful (if before the
appropriate freeze date). Then if you want existing stable releases
updated, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates for the policy
requirements and procedure to get this done. Assuming the only changes
are bugfixes, this should be straightforward, though some extra care and
effort is needed to make sure that we do not regress existing users.
