Ok, I understand that. Nevertheless I think that it would be
better if the developer who commits a security fix to the trunk
requests the pull-up himself rather than relying on others
scanning the commit messages to issue pull-up requests.

(And, of course, someone would actually have to do the pull-up... :-)
