There was a discussion on this recently on gnome-infrastructure,
One (slightly difficult) way is to use 'git cherry-pick', as described at
There are two ways to do this. The easiest is what Shaun describes at
1. First make the change in the branch (such as gnome-2-26) and commit it.
2. Then, move back to 'master', which is done with
$ git checkout master
Switched to branch "master"
3. Finally, merge the commit from the branch onto the master
$ git merge gnome-2-26
po/el.po | 2 --
1 files changed, 0 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-)
The job is done, you can now push so that both the branch and 'master'
get to git.gnome.org ;-).
