should we remove the codeowners file when branching?
I clearly made the 2 mistakes:
I did it more than once, so what you propose seems a good failsafe
@Théo Zimmermann suggests to never close the branch used for backports, which would avoid this, but I don't like the git mumbo-jumbo you have to do
So I don't really know if removing codeowners is a good idea in general (for sure it is if I'm the RM ;-) )
Before the advent of draft PR, we did indeed remove the CODEOWNERS file from release branches.
We could make it a systematic step of the release process (by adding it to the documented release checkboxes).
