Fungi worked out that the issue with this job was the way the branch
script uses "git push" to create the branch. In this case, the
stable/mitaka branch had already been deleted, so gerrit thought
we were trying to push a bunch of other commits that were not on
any named branch. It refused to let the bot push commits it did not

I created the 2 branches by hand, then ran a tweaked version of
make_branch.sh to submit the .gitreview and upper constraints URL
patches. I made notes in the "future" section at the bottom of
https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/pike-relmgt-plan about the 2 fixes
we need to make to address the failure in the future.
