[RFC] Performing backport merge commits from cron

From: Daniel Shahaf <danielsh_at_elego.de>

Okay, maybe I wasn't clear enough. :-)

RFC:

    Create a role account on svn-qavm.apache.org and have it run
    backport.pl once a day, at 4am UTC, _and commit the resulting
    merges_.

Impact on the backport process:

- The RM still needs to verify that STATUS is empty before rolling
  a tarball.

- STATUS entries will need to adhere to the current syntax.

- Approved STATUS entries that are not to be auto-merged will need to
  be designated as such.

Error handling:

- post-commit emails allow us to review the merges that are committed.

- Stefan has root on svn-qavm and he's agreed to help by turning the
  cron off if it acts up.

- Beyond that it's just debugging :)
