In working towards maintaining an LTS version of Gitea, one of the blockers was to be able to backport pull requests, for bug fixes and other changes.

was to be able to efficiently backport pull requests

Manual backports possible, just arduous, doubly so in the context of a potential LTS.

One of Gitea's maintainers, [yardenshoham](https://github.com/yardenshoham), in an effort to improve their development workflow created a tool to allow automation to create backports.

A side-effect of this effort is that this tool can not only be used to backport just for his pull-requests, but most pull requests that need a backport too.
We are enormously thankful for his effort in creating this tool, as it has allowed numerous (a few hundred at last count) backports, and increased development velocity.
As well, with the tool being open source it has allowed others to provide enhancements.

I sort of want to make the quip about automating us out of a job, but maybe not in this post. 😁

Feel free to check out the repo.

Not a big deal, I just vaguely recall something about not using "here" for links.

Yes, you are right. Thanks for catching that. As when browsing links with screen readers if your link just says "here" it'll read solely that, so having more context aids in understanding what the link is.

I've made that edit, and the others too :)
