Subject Re: Time to push on for 4.2.0
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2018 14:19:00 GMT
For the trunk->4.2.0 we can do what we do for Apache httpd. Create
a STATUS file which lists, via SVN commit revisions, what
backports are proposed to apply from trunk to the 4.2.0 branch.
Once 3 +1 votes are cast on the backport request, they get
committed to the branch.

Basically, trunk remains CTR whereas the branch becomes RTC
using a STATUS file as the backport tracker.
