Assuming the fix you want to apply to the release branch is
You can use this procedure.
git clone https://github.com/kbemis/Cardinalcd Cardinal
curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Bioconductor/mirror/master/update_remotes.sh
chmod u+x update_remotes.sh
git checkout release-3.2
git log master # lookup the sha (93ca48aa1053)
git cherry-pick 93ca48aa1053# Fix the conflict in the NEWS file
git cherry-pick --continue
git svn dcommit
If you have other changes you need to make in release that are not on your
master branch simply commit them to the release-3.2 branch directly and
forgo the cherry-picking.
Hope this helps!
