Cool, yes that would be a "way". Thanks Helmut!

Related to this, I just found out this:


Which provides a very nice view of our branches. Hovering over the 
commit dots in the different branches one can pretty much recognize 
stuff that was committed to master and not to TYPO3_4-5, which is kind 
of this information I would like to "filter" (to see if all bugs solved 
in master are being backported to 4-5).

I guess I will write some scripts to maybe automate the process of 
finding this kind of stuff. Maybe if it could be made "easy" (and maybe 
semi-automated), we could delegate the job of backporting the fixes 
solved in master branch to the Release Manager, thus easing the process 
for "everyone else". At least for the easy bugfixes. But no promises yet. :)
