Once we've pulled the 23.10 release throttle

We need to be disciplined with respect to bugfix commits. Here are a few common-sense suggestions:

  • All bug fixes must be double-committed to the release throttle, and the master branch
    • Commit first to the master branch, then "git cherry-pick" into release throttle
    • Manual merges may be required, depending on the degree of divergence between throttle and master
  • All externally found bug fixes need to have a Jira ticket
    • Please put Jira IDs into the commit messages.
    • Please use the same Jira ID for commits into the stable branch and master.
