When we have 0.4.1 and 0.4.2 with practracker, and a backport branch makes a practice worse, we will need to update the practracker exceptions in multiple branches:

  1. Update the exceptions in 0.4.1
  2. Ours merge to 0.4.2
  3. Update the exceptions in 0.4.2

If we automate this process, we can make it faster and more reliable.

If we rebuild the list for every exception in #29880, we don't need to rebuild it when we branch a release in #29883.

As another alternative, we could disable practracker on every branch except master, or on non-mainline branches.

These can be sponsor 31, if we want them to be.
