if I continue developing the app in master and fix some bugs on
the way, the fixes will be in master first. I would not always
want to put them into 4.6 at once because testing in master is
much easier and comes at much less cost while development goes
on. So I might even want to wait some days or even weeks until
backporting fixes.
