Pullups of revisions to the release branch are handled by developers
submitting requests to release engineering; from the perspective
of non-developers, this is about the same degree of abstraction
as commits are handled by developers.

Therein, if you want a pullup, you need to get a developer to submit
the pullup. If you're not in communication with a developer on the
issue, then you should file a change-request PR.
