Thanks for the review - I pushed at the master branch.

4 questions:

a) There are some parts left from my PATCH 5/8. I've updated
the patch (see attached). Shall I push it?

b) Do you want me to push to the 4.6 branch, too? (see c)).

c) Will we maintain a 4.6 and a 4.7 line in parallel (although
we don't have anything big for master)?  I must confess that
I'm a bit confused with this model. Other projects just leave
bug fixing up to downstream distributions which can pick commits
as they like.
Furthermore, it is common to have a 2-block release version string
only; by this, they can use gnulib's "build-aux/git-version-gen",
and have a proper distribution tarball name matching the Git
revision (e.g. "grep-2.22.15-40ed.tar.xz") at any time instead of
a static name "...-4.7.0-git".
Would you consider this a good thing for findutils, too?

d) Another 'make update-copyright' would complain - (how) can we
fix this, too?

Thanks & have a nice day,
