I echo this sentiment because I see how hard the release team have to work
for each release. Very much appreciated.

Perhaps an alternate strategy for interim fixes that explicitly creates just
a set of patches or updates could be formalised (or have I just missed it)?

I'm never sure what branch I need to retrieve to solve this. Perhaps always
having one labelled '1_35_latest_bugfix' is sufficient to get people

Thanks team, looking forward to a smooth 1.36
