sure but even in the commercial world, typical support model says
"reproduce with latest version" -- even moreso with OSS.  if you have a
problem an on ancient version, there are too many variables.  reproduce on
an updated system and you are more likely to get help.  not a perfect
answer, but quite common.  ultimately it is your problem so others might
help but impetus ultimately yours.  you really want to run an updated
version anyway, have you read the CVEs?  :-)
