Hi KDE project maintainers,
now tells how to make sure KDE CI picks up your new "stable" branch
Some days ago I found that a few products on KDE CI in the "Extragear" section
had not seen builds of their stable branches for some months (I remember at
least Krita & Kexi), despite being under good development.
Reason was that for those products a needed step had not been done after the
"stable" branches were switched to new ones:
manually triggering an initial build with the new branch
(needed with current CI logic).
To make KDE CI less a black magic box but more a controlled tool for KDE
developers, please find some documentation about the steps needed to be done
for build.kde.org on switching the stable branch here:

Please update & improve where needed (it's a wiki... ;) ).
