If you have more than one release branch going at the same time, and
you use the branches to do hotfixes, patches, and perhaps new minor
releases, a good pattern can be to always do the fix on the oldest
branch, then merge the fix to the next oldest branch, and test it
there (and perhaps rewrite it completely...), and then merge that fix
into the next release branch, and repeat until you reach the trunk.
