I see. Maybe you could add the bug number to the commit message, next
time? This would avoid this kind of comment, perhaps.

I know. I'm writing software for decades, and I've managed several times
to damage a release with "it's just a one-line patch, I cannot make it
wrong". Therefore, I'm extremely conservative with last minute
changes. And I still believe your patch could have waited for opening
the release branch for Emacs 26.1.50.

Best regards, Michael.
