Indeed.  My bad.

If someone else wants to volunteer for this task, please speak up.

In the meantime, I'm thankful for the errors you patiently fix.

Backporting changes from Emacs Org to Org repo is boring too.
It seems easy enough to

~$ git clone git://orgmode.org/org-mode.git
~$ git checkout maint

and fix stuff there.

I think that's the way things work in general: prefer contributing
downstream instead of upstream.  If Org becomes a submodule, I hope
that Emacs core contributors will contribute to Org directly.
