Hi Cristian

Having just gone through this and made a few errors I'll test my new
knowledge here.

All commits should be to trunk.
Commits that need to be backported to 2.4 should be indicated as
requiring audit by adding "BP" (no quotes) on a line on their own to
the commit message.
Having been audited, which in practice appears be that no-one objects
to the backport, the changes are then cherry picked to to the 2.4
branch.  Christian Stimming has written a script to do the cherry
pick, utils/  This assumes you are using git.  It
correctly adds the original trunk commit revision in [123456] to the
commit message.
Commit this to 2.4 branch.


I see that John Ralls has recently updated this section.
