I would prefer fixing things in the Master branch and then 
cherry-picking them to the release branch. If we find a bug in a release 
branch that is already fixed in Master, we should look how the hell that 
happened and refer to the commit in Master that fixed the problem and 
cannot be cherry-picked.

Which also means that people should NOT mix bugfixing and new features 
in the same commit in Master.
