Let's say I have a change for qtbase's dev branch that is supposed to be 
cherry-picked to 6.1. What happens if this change hits qtbase between 
those two points in time:

- final dependency update sha1s are fixed, full update round started
- 6.1 branch is created

The change in question cannot have the Pick-to: 6.1 footer, because the 
branch does not exist. How can I avoid to forget cherry-picking that 
change, once 6.1 is in place?
