Patches get applied to trunk first, then if they're needed for a
specific release branch they'll get applied to that branch as well. In
the very unusual case that a bug is only in the release branch then
whoever is managing the release would take care of applying the patch
to the branch.

As a beginning contributor I (and you, I hope!) just post patches to a
Jira and, once the patch is in good enough shape with reviews and
passes Jenkins, a committer takes care of the rest of the process.
