miss-islington is an awesome bot! It makes fixing bugs in multiple versions much simpler. You need just accept automatically created backporting PRs.
But there is a downside. miss-islington makes the life so easier, that sometimes you forgot about not finished backports. miss-islington can fail to backport some changes for different reasons. Currently on GitHub there are tens merged PRs labeled for backporting, but backports were not finished. Please take attention if your PRs in one of the following lists:
Does github allow repository owners to send email directly to people who have submitted PRs or at least, people with commit privileges (in this case, those whose have done particular merges)?
Several of these were closed without merging and should not and cannot be backported. For instance, you closed https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/4225 after you submitted and merged a replacement. https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/6259
Stripping backport labels off of rejected PRs could be considered. But this would toss information needed for a new PR if the bpo issue is open. Expecting either the submitter or merged of a replacement to go back and clean up the original seems a bit much. The submitter might not be able to, and the merger might not know or forget that the PR is a replacement. Perhaps rejected PRs should just be ignored.
Replacing 'closed' with 'merged' excludes rejected PRs.
The 2.7 backport of https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/3639 is yours.
