Bob probably didn't *really* mean "backport".  My guess is he's just 
trying to work out what master | maint | 3.0 | 3.x | something else mean 
now in ordinary terms.

I can't figure it out either.

I'd like to join Bob and say I'm also not understanding this.

I think what I am asking is:

could you please relate the git commands to versions people understand.

Maybe Bob was asking something different, if so, my apols to him.
