I want to create a patch for the 5.9 version,
however it's not clear for me which branch to use.

This guide http://wiki.qt.io/Branch-Guidelines
"All bugfixes go into the "most frozen" maintained branch which they are relevant for. "

So I assume I should use 5.9 and not 5.9.6, right ?

What is unclear is also:

"release: the current deep-frozen branch. It corresponds with one actual release and consequently has a name like 5.3.1. It is (usually) created from the stable branch when a release is imminent. It is terminated by a release tag, after which the branch is merged and deleted."

especially the last part "...after which the branch is merged and deleted."
However there are multiple 5.x.y branches. Shouldn't they be no more ?

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
