Generally the person committing a patch to trunk will later port it to
the fixes branch when he feels it has had sufficient testing in trunk.
Sometimes he will commit it to the fixes branch immediately, either due
to the severe nature of the bug fixed, or because there is practically
no chance that the change will cause a regression.
