First stage

Although this can be done by the backporter when (s)he notices an issue should be backported, it is usually done by the original developer when (s)he realizes the fix must be backported.

  • Add the name of the release to the comma separated list of release in the Backport field of the issue (see journal Unable to read past sequence 406 for instance).
  • Change the issue status to Pending Backport
