[Development] Using Git notes to reflect actual cherry-picks

This shouldn’t be too difficult to set up as a cron job on the gerrit server to run in all repos—I do agree with Tor Arne though that the notes should be namespaced if possible.

Could you reupload the change to qt/qtqa/scripts/gerrit/cherrypick-git-notes ?

See comment in review.

I think a prerequisite for running this kind of script against our repos is that the notes are namespaced, e.g. refs/notes/cherry-picks so that fetching and showing them in git log output is optional.

Other than that I think it’s a nice feature :)

No one?

The script here is working.
