Hi chessai,

What I usually do for this is open up the corresponding GitHub page, e.g.:

where I see the list of branches the commit was added to, below the commit
message (note that you have to click "..." to see the full list of
branches). The branches ending with `-release` (e.g. ghc-8.6.5-release)
answer your question, I believe.

Best, Artem
