My normal model is to commit anything that goes to maint-2.20 to maint-2.20 and
later merge it to master.  (If using a feature branch destined to maint-2.20,
I'd base it on maint-2.20, merge it there and then later merge to master.)  I
would avoid rebasing anything that has been pushed to a public repo.
Cherrypicking is, however, ok.

Of course, any translator string changes (including, I think, manpage changes)
should go to master only.  (But since you are the one sending the request, feel
free to violate that rule as you see fit.)
