That's the way I find it easiest to manage.  Otherwise you have to 
remember which patches have been applied to the branch and which have 
not.  So I prefer to merge them to the branch them all-at-once.  However 
if the branch diverges from trunk much then that's impractical.

Fix Version should name the first release that the patch is intended to 
appear in.  This may or may not correspond directly to the subversion 
branch that the patch is committed to.

Another approach is to make all patches first in the release branch, 
then merge them to trunk.  Personally I find that to be a pain, but it 
might be more scalable.  It keeps things synchronized between Jira and
