There needs to be an agreed convention to mark trunk changes that should
be backported to the release branch at some later date. "Remember to do
it" doesn't scale.

A note in the commit log would do, but it should have some kind of
standard format. But if we only realize after the commit was made,
some other method is needed. Either a file in admin, or perhaps a git
notes file.
