The cherrymaint app could have an export-to-plaintext option that the RM
could then commit as a first step of their work.

(Matter of fact, the export format could maybe even be accompanied by
a tool in Porting/ that pulls the list, commits it, then tries to apply
all of the voted commits, all in one go. Or maybe just the next commit
that is not cherry-picked to the current branch yet. Or whatever helps.)
