[TYPO3-core] Change procedure revisited

Can we have some "official", documented statement about the correct 
procedure to submit a patch and apply it to various branches.

AFAIK the latest procedure was to push it to master first and after it 
was merged the poor guy/girl who couldn't resist pushing the the submit 
button has to port it to the next lower branch.
Judging from comments in Gerrit this procedure is not clear, because 
some think that it should be pushed to all branches simultaneously, some 
think the committer has to keep track and backport, etc.

I'm not a fan of having loads of rules and regulations, but in cases 
like this it helps to fight confusion.

Kind regards / met vriendelijke groet,

Jigal van Hemert.
