I was just pointing out some IMO relevant experience in response to ‘just choose an idles time for branching and you’ve got no issue’. We rely on people’s goodwill to write nice commit messages — this is not going to change — and my only goal was to remind readers why clear commit messages are important (ie. I know about the guidelines, it would be nice if more people followed them).

Fair enough.

I do propose a solution on the new thread about the release: have a
script, and show people when their back-port candidate wasn't picked
up by it.

This is both educational and polite. It doesn't need to rely on vague
guidelines, but is also no form of backlash. :)
