what i've started doing for bugfixes is to apply the fix to the stable branch 
(e.g. 4.6) and then cherry-pick that into master. when i tried to merge the 
4.6 branch into master, i just got a ton of conflicts, so i stopped trying 
that :)

my git fu is not strong, however, so i'm near certain there must be better 
ways ...
