A contributing backporting a commit can now simply run `git backport --from=jdk <HASH>` to backport a commit from the JDK repo targeting the current repository. The "other" direction is also possible, where the user runs the command in a local clone of their personal fork of the jdk repository: `git backport --to=jdk16u <HASH>`. The user can optionally supply a branch, as in `git backport --to=jfx --branch=jfx14 <HASH>`.

For some reason, I do not see backport command in the Skara help even on the freshly recloned version of skara, what could go wrong?
