Subject Re: Backporting a patch to a release branch
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:57:16 GMT
Hi,
I think what we did for now is this: When merging a PR onto the master that
we also consider to be required in a future release of an older release
branch we cherry-pick it there and make the required changes. This only
works for committers, of course, since we can just do that.

I think in your case (and future cases) you can cherry-pick it on the
release branch and then provide a link to your branch in the original PR
such that the committer who merges it can also put it into the older
release branch.

Cheers,
Aljoscha
