RFR: 1076: Not possible to use 'Backport <sha>' if original bug doesn't have public sha

This patch adds a new way of declaring a pull requests to be a backport for situations where the original hash of the original change is not known or available. Technically such a PR should already work without the backport label, but it will display a warning about the issue not being open. By being able to declare a backport, that warning will be eliminated, which should make the user experience smoother and hopefully help avoid mistakes.

To use the new feature, you create a PR with a title "Backport <issueid>" instead of "Backport <hash>". Once this goes live, I will update the Skara wiki documentation.
