[TYPO3-core] Gerrit submission process for multiple branches

Hi all,

Did we ever define what the correct process should be when we want to 
submit patches to multiple branches? I recently submitted a patch for 
4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 and now Xavier remarked that I shouldn't have done so, 
as it complicates the review process.

I can agree with that, but OTOH I think submitting to only one branch 
entails a real risk of forgetting other branches later on. For example, 
I'm pretty sure that - in the rush of fixing stuff for releasing 4.6 - 
quite a few backports to 4.5 were forgotten.

As far as I can remember we had floated the idea of using topics, so 
that all related patch submissions could be found. Then one in 
particular can be reviewed and changes requested in that one can be 
ported to the others.

What should we decide?
