I do not agree to backporting aka cherry picking. I prefer forward
merges(tofu scale) 4.4 to 4.5 to master etc.
That way, none of the changes will be missed and git branch --contains
gives a nice view of where all the changes went.

Hi Daan,

Indeed. I prefer committing to master first, as it will ensure everything
ends up there (unless some specific use cases). Currently, we have the risk
of forgetting to include a fix to a release branch back to master.

When we reverse it, some bug fix that should end up in the x.y branch, is
committed to master, then also applied (or reimplemented) to x.y. If you
then only take one of the two steps, there is no issue as it will be in
master only (and people will notice). In the other situation, when we
accept a PR to x.y and forget to merge back, we possibly introduce
regression bugs.

I will update the diagram and wiki later tonight.

While reviewing PRs, let’s be alert to see PRs not pointed towards master
and at least discuss it.
