The first time I looked at the "backport to 3.6" flag, I understood
that the change was written on the 3.6 branch and asked to rebase the
change on 3.6. If I was confused, I'm sure that someone else will be
confused as well :-)

What do you think of renaming the label to "need 3.6 backport" (or
"need backport to 3.6")?
