So in answer to your question yes, the person fixing the bug generally 
does the fix in the trunk first, then merges over to the branch.  This 
means that the person most familiar with the changes is responsible for 
merging, and the RM doesn't have to do it.

The RM has general responsibility for deciding (or at least facilitating 
a decision about) *which* fixes are targeted to the branch, but it's the 
  individual coder who does the work.
