My current UI shows this as relevant *only* to 3.4 and 3.5.  If it really has been fixed in 3.6, and the fix can't be backported, I think the risk of breaking backup programs is enough to argue for doing nothing more than a doc change.  Anyone still using 3.4 (or even 3.5) *and* able to install from source is likely to be more upset by unexpected (and possibly silent) breakage of an existing process than new exploits of a 6 year old bug.  

That said, I'm probably the wrong person to verify which versions are affected, so consider this as only soft support for Release Manager to do so if this continues to languish.
