That's what I finished up doing.  I had a note from a while back, which 
was misleading, but I got to the bottom of that.

However, I have a problem.  This commit is just a single line delete, I 
think there is a big difference between HEAD and 4.7, so far as the CSV 
importer is concerned.  My one line patch becomes much larger, because 
HEAD includes Revision 50f7b6c4.

OK, I think I understand this bit now.  That large change gets omitted 
in the pull from 4.7, so doesn't affect the patch.

Next problem.  I've done the cherry-pick and have checked the diff. 
However, normally I push to master like - ssh-add ~//.ssh//id_rsa && git 
push kde:kmymoney, but I think I need to push to 4.7, but I don't know 
the exact address to use.  I've had a few guesses, but don't want the 
police calling.

Apart from that, it would be good to have all the steps necessary to do 
a commit to 4.7
