Thanks for working on this update!  Crazy that it turned out to be this

In general I’d be in favor of not doing that, unless the fixes are
important (build issue, security issue, etc.), as was the case when we
packaged 2.26; and, if there are important fixes, I’d rather extract
them from the whole patch stream, and skip unrelated changes.

For example, I’m sure we can live without the locale updates that show
up in this patch set.  :-)

Do you know which of these patches are really needed?
