This is the *branch* policy, which if I understand correctly, the
branch maintainer sets. For MR-279 Arun used CTR, for HDFS-1052 Suresh
used RTC. I think that's OK. IMO the people doing the work on the
branch should make the call. Either way the final patch to trunk goes
by the normal rules that any patch to trunk follows.
