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
or at least, I've been doing it as part of T-release
it's usually better if backports are batched instead of making lots of PRs about it, to avoid increasing the queue
alright, good to know
and thanks for doing it!
