Ie, you switched in place from master to the release branch without
cleaning up first. You can't expect this to work. An older branch cannot
reliably clean-up for a newer branch.

Please take the emacs-announce keyword out of the subject (future
announcements should use Keyword: instead to avoid this), since this
whole chain is not an announcement. It's not even related to the
pretest, since you built from git, not the pretest.
