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.
