Thank you.

I find it a little ugly to replace the exact version string with only
the major+minor version substring.  Why can’t we use the full version

Do you mean that other packages (such as m4, gettext, etc) compare
against only the major+minor substring of glibc?  If that is so, I think
this patch is acceptable as we cannot possibly patch all other packages
to use the full version string.
