No. Ubuntu policy is to make only minimal changes for stable release
updates with some exceptions (web browsers in particular, and certain
high priority Canonical projects like snap, etc.)

If you can isolate certain commits that make things better (especially
if you can come up with a test case), we can definitely backport
specific fixes.


Note that Ubuntu 16.10 "yakkety" is (or will be) using Evolution and
e-d-s 3.22, not 3.20. We did that because we really wanted to get the
old WebKit1 out of the default install.
