And normally that would have happened already, but I was on vacation for
a few weeks and am still catching up on patches.  Stuff like code
cleanup for staging is at the bottom of my list at the moment, as it's
not essencial to get merged at the moment, only in time for the next
release cycle.

As you got an automated email from me already, all is fine, it's not
lost, you will get another email when it is applied, or if there are
problems with it.
