Cannot backport issues that have been released
If you try to cherrypick a commit that's been released to a release branch, the commit validation fails and also the release automation will fail.
Add support for a new tag such as
backport #1234 which can be added to cherry picks.
Update the commit validation to use the new tag and update any attached issue. It should also skip validating the state of any
closes/etc tagged issue.
Optimally the release automation should be able to attach the backport issues to the release milestone. Perhaps it could
git blame the CHANGES entries.
If this is too difficult, another option would be to disable this part of the release automation for release branches.
