Hi Kasun,

There will probably be another 3.5.* release in the future, so please
fix the bug. It is also present in current master, so it is certainly
useful to fix it.

Because it is a bug in the 3.5.* series, you should work on branch QA_3_5 :

1. clone phpMyAdmin on Github
2. checkout branch QA_3_5 of your cloned repo
3. branch from the QA_3_5 branch for fixing this bug (fe. name it bug_3800)
4. create your patch and commit it to this branch (bug_3800)
5. push this branch (bug_3800) to your cloned repo
6. create a pull request from your branch (bug_3800) to phpmyadmin/QA_3_5

If your patch applies to current master as well, it will be merged by
the person reviewing your commit, or you will be asked to create a
seperate patch for master in case the patch cannot easily be applied
to master.

I hope this helps you.

Kind regards,

Dieter Adriaenssens
