If it were that simple, I would just have done it. :)

Some of these issues will actually be fixed in 25.2, some will be fixed
in the old 25.2, which is now 26.1. (It would be great if release
version numbers were predictable in advance.)

I suggest looking at the date the issue was closed and comparing it to
the date the version numbering was changed. But then you also need to
check for issues that have been backported since. And you might also
want to review every such issue to see if it _should_ be backported now.
