[Gluster-devel] [Request] Backport to release branch *only* after master branch merge

Hello Developers,

Can we make a *strict* practice to send patches to review in release 
branch only after it gets merged in 'master' branch ? Specially because 
there would be extra noise in gerrit, and also confusion in case of 
review processes. If two reviewers review the same patch in different 
branches, (just for example like [1][2]), we will never have a 
collaborated review history for future reference.

Having a rule/practice that we post patches to release branch only after 
'master' merge would help reviewers a lot. It would also reduce load on 
regression and smoke test machines (because if there is a patch refresh 
for every comment, instead of 1 tests, we may have to run 2 (or more)).
