Backport Experience

Hi Erik,

thanks for your answer.

As of today I don't see "git backport" yet. But I assume you'll add it in due course ��

There's one other question which occurred to me in a certain workflow: There is the cool git hg-export command to extract a mercurial patch out of a git repository. Is something like this possible the other way around? E.g. when I have a change in a mercurial repository only and want to bring it into a git repository? Maybe there exists a description for some manual steps... ?
