I plan to give another approach a try during the HF.
The idea would be to use a CLI tool (https://github.com/sqren/backport or
https://github.com/chainer/backport) which would be run a cron workflow.
Using a cron will avoid the issues of PR from forks (the workflow user has
rights to create branches).
Hopefully these tools work better than the current bot.
The only drawback I see up to now is that you'll have to wait for the cron
to start (30min?).
