Which are they? They may be contenders for warty-update fixes.

Ubuntu does a Preview release on the day GNOME is released, and then
does a Final release one month later. So that means we track GNOME
throughout its development, and have an additional month to do bugfixes.
GNOME point releases are usually made up of vendor fixes, and I fully
expect the majority of those to be from Ubuntu and Fedora in the future.

That means you won't be missing out on the fixes - they will be fixes
from Ubuntu anyway!
