[openstack-dev] [release][ptl][all] self-service branch management

Hello, Doug,

This is great. One question about the branch patches. In the past, when a new branch was created, we often have to update the devstack plugin to pull the code from correct branch. So if self-service branch management is available, will the devstack plugin will be updated with one patch too?

Best Regards
Chaoyi Huang (joehuang)

The release team is pleased to announce that the branch automation
work is now complete, and that teams can now manage feature and
stable branch creation through the openstack/releases repository.

Creating a branch is very similar to creating a release: Edit the
appropriate file in the releases repo to add the branch information,
let the release team review it, and then when the patch is approved
the bots make your branch. New branches come with patches to update
.gitreview, reno, and constraint settings where needed.

For the complete details about how to format a branch request, see
the README.rst file in the repo [1].

Thanks, as always, to the Infra team for their help in implementing
this automation.
