Hi all,

In the last QA Meeting we chatted briefly about the case of bugs that
have been fixed in master (or Fresh) but still exist in Fresh or

There's a whiteboard tag that (kind of?) relates to this problem, but
appears to have a much smaller scope:

After chatting with the devs to gauge their opinions, we got some
basic feedback:
* Once a bug is fixed in master, it's considered fixed
* Use bibisect to identify which commit fixed a problem
* Devs more willing to backport small commits & easy cases
* Anyone can push a backport to gerrit
* Let the original dev know about the desire to backport

I've made a short note about backporting here, under the documentation
for the sub-status 'WORKSFORME':

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!
