Not automatically, generally you should add a CC to stable for the patch 
to be considered as part of stable release. That said, usually Fixed: 
tag is also used to determine whether a patch is backport-able, so 
having a correctly identified Fixed: tag is a mandatory minimum :)

Not yet, but i'll try to make some time this week.
