Can you wrap lines to ~75 chars?  Also, you can use ‘Co-authored-by:
Zerwas’ if deemed appropriate here.


The .patch files above should just have “New files” in the commit log
(see other commits for examples.)  However, can you please move the
description of what the patches do at the top of the patches themselves,
possibly with a reference to the upstream commit/bug report/discussion?

I think the ‘display’ is a leftover, right?  ;-)

I would rather write it this way:

  (let* ((check (assq-ref %standard-phases 'check))
           (lambda* ...)))
    (alist-cons-after 'pre-check 'check check
                      (alist-cons-after 'install 'pre-check pre-check
                                        (alist-delete 'check

(Woow, this ought to be simpler...)

Could you run ‘make sync-descriptions’ and use whatever synopsis and
description it suggests?  (That comes from the canonical GNU package

Thanks for the nice work!
