How to apply hotfixes?

Suppose you are working with the tested branch and you find that something fishy happened to it. You contact the CasADi developers, who will try to make a fix for it, in the form of commits to the develop branch.

You can check whether such hot-fix commits resolve the issue without waiting for the trunktesterbot to merge in those commits into tested:

git stash && git cherry-pick << hash(es) of the fixing commits >> && git stash pop

Go ahead, check if the hot-fix helps and provide feedback to the CasADi developers.
