Hi all, there seems to be some confusion concerning
the backport tracker.
The purpose of the backport tracker is to track backports of fixes that need to
go into multiple stable branches, so they don't "fall through the cracks".
If you need to backport something from master *only* to nautilus *and no
farther*, there is no need to create tracker issues for backporting purposes.
Just open your nautilus PR with the cherry-pick .
This is news to me. Has this policy been changed recently? What was the
rationale do change it? I remember I reviewed that chapter, but somehow
missed that particular detail.
(If there is already a master tracker issue, you can
just mention the URL of the
nautilus backport in a comment on the tracker. You don't need to change the
status to Pending Backport or fill in the Backport field.)
I have to agree with Patrick that I find this confusing and more error
prone. Why making that exception? If a backport is needed, a
corresponding tracker issue should be created.
