a meta question: if something is beta accepted, who is doing the backporting? in the past I often did the backport if I was the original author of the PR, but more recently there seem to be quite a few people who are happy to provide this service. Is this codified somewhere? I.e. do we have designated "backporters"?

@mw as far as I understand that's done by the release team

Pietro Albini (Jan 24 2019 at 15:56, on Zulip):

or at least, I've been doing it as part of T-release

Pietro Albini (Jan 24 2019 at 15:56, on Zulip):

it's usually better if backports are batched instead of making lots of PRs about it, to avoid increasing the queue

mw (Jan 24 2019 at 15:57, on Zulip):

alright, good to know

mw (Jan 24 2019 at 15:57, on Zulip):

and thanks for doing it! :)
