Ah, thanks :) Sorry, still catching up on e-mails.

Usually, for downports, unless you don't completely rewrite the original change, the author should be kept the original author. Probably it's a bit more difficult to get this fixed with all the reshuffling that has to be done for 8u patches. But I think we should stick to that procedure. Or what do other folks say here?

I agree. That's the way I've always done backports in 6 & 7.
It's a simple matter of hg commit -u <USER>.

I'm in two minds about this. If there's a delay between request and
approval, it may be better to separate the original tested push and
the merge with the current state, so the original testing isn't lost.
Best to avoid it if possible though.
