At the moment, we have the following bugfixing workflow in plasma:
* fix a bug in master
* cherry pick the fix to stable branch(es)
The last step is usually done without creating a MR. If there is a merge
conflict, some people do create a MR though.
I propose to make creating MRs for bugfix backports mandatory:
- this helps us to ensure that CI is happy
- increases the visibility of what happens in stable branches. For
example some people help with backporting bugfixes, but they can forget
to include a commit if the original MR included multiple commits.
Hopefully, this can help us to catch these cases
Ideally this should be automated, but we have no tooling to do that.
