Description

Teor mentioned wanting to create a helper script for use when backporting branches to older versions of Tor. It would behave like "merge-forward", but instead create a set of candidate branches -- and maybe pull requests for those branches too.

Once #31314 merges, we can downgrade this ticket to sponsor31-can.

I don't think writing a script to automatically create pull requests is a good use of my time (I haven't done any GitHub automation before). If someone else wants to do it, we should spend up to 1 day on it.

The remaining work on this ticket is automatically creating pull requests: that's not urgent.

Actually, if we ever decide to do that work, it should be in another ticket.
