It would be nice, but it is not required.

It would be great if it is encouraged then. 

from the release
branch to master usually requires some manual work, and is sometimes
not for the faint at heart.

If each committer makes sure to merge their commit, others don't have to review if they are merging others' commits correctly. I can talk of my experience in Org repo.. after my commits to the maint branch, all I need to do is check out master and do a merge.. as simple as this in Magit: "b b" (checkout master) "m m" (merge maint).

An example to follow, I'm sure.  Maybe we could have someone volunteer
to be our "merge champion"?

One doesn't need to be a "champion" as they are just making sure that their commit is landing in master too.

Would you consider documenting and at least recommending this flow?
