I'm wondering if we really need backport.pl running as cronjob to
merge backports automatically to the stable branches? It's not a first
time when this automatic job performs invalid merges. And as far I
understand we still spend some time to babysit this tool, fix bugs
etc. What is wrong with old proven process by merging revisions
