When a released a version becomes the head of the master branch from which all bugfixes and features are branched. So if a bug fix is made it can be integrated into both a maintenance release and the develop branch for the next feature release. I wouldn't expect 6.1 to be maintained after 6.5 is released but I would expect it to be maintained until it is released. While it is still possible if the bug is critical enough to branch a bugfix off an older release tag on the master branch it's probably going to be rare.

Obviously I'm being stupid again, as I am unaware of the branching system.

Can you be so kind as to point out to me where I may read about it in 
more detail.
