wiki: MinorReleases has an out of date statement on backporting policy #40206
The https://golang.org/wiki/MinorReleases page currently still says:
That statement isn't true per discussion in #34536. We should either update it or remove it. If it's not already said elsewhere on the page, we should likely replace it with something similar to what's written in #34536 (comment).
Example confusion: For #40917, I read that sentence and understood that if we backport the fix to Go 1.15, a "valid workaround" would be to tell users "use a more recent stable version" (e.g., Go 1.15.1).
That seems to contradict #34536 (comment), which says it should be ported to both Go 1.14+1.15, as the regression was introduced in 1.14.
