Seems reasonable for SSSD as well..

Two questions:
    1) If you backport from a non-maintenance branch to a maintenance
       branch, do you also move the ticket? IOW, do you also expect the
       list of changes to be visible in track, or do you only care about
       'auditing' of each commit?

    2) If another commit (which can be totally unrelated in
       functionality, just touching the same area of code) needs to be
       applied before the one you backport, do you add the ticket URL
       to the prerequisite as well or create a new one?
