> I got a request to backport this to the binutils-2.30 branch.Â I'm not sure what the rules are for backporting patches to release branches for binutils.Â Can I just approve this myself?Â Or do I need the release maintainer (Nick?) to approve it?
The rules are:
* If it is a new feature then you need the approval of a
global maintainer, and the answer will probably be "no".
* Otherwise, if we are not in the build up to a release
then the normal patch approval rules apply. So in the
case of the fix for PR 15904, since you are the IA64
maintainer you can approve it yourself.
* Otherwise, when we are in the run up to a new release,
all patches should be run past the Release Manager just
so that he/she/they can keep a handle on how the release
is shaping up.
