When doing backports please include the branch you backported the commit to
(I have run across several places where I have _not_ done this and it is a
bit annoying to sort out after the fact).
A quick guide to how to backport (which should go in the docs):
git remote update
git checkout target_branch
git merge --ff-only matplotlib/target_branch
git cherry-pick -m TARGET_SHA
gitk # to look at it
# local tests? (use your judgement)
git push DANGER target_branch
# leave a comment on PR noting sha of the resulting commit
# from the cherry-pick + branch it was moved to
here matplotlib is a read-only remote to the matplotlib/matplotlib repo and
DANGER in a read/write remote to the matplotlib/matplotlib repo.
These commands work on git 2.7.1.
