I would change the Tramp version from "2.6.3-pre" to "", and I
would update `customize-package-emacs-version-alist'.

The Tramp version happens on several places in Emacs, so I have a small
automation which runs on my laptop. See lisp/net/trampver.el and

If it doesn't bother you too much, an alert just to me would be OK.

No. As I've said already in another message, this ship has sailed. And
it happened already in the past: Emacs 22.3 came with Tramp 2.0.58-pre,
and Emacs 23.4 came with Tramp 2.1.21-pre.

Best regards, Michael.
