Sorry, yes, I meant 'git cherry-pick' from master to release branch.  'git
merge' there would not make sense.

I have never seen a workflow were development only happens in master, but the
release branch is then merged into master.  If development is truly only
happening in master, there should be nothing to merge into master, right?
