Can you please take a snapshot of your state?

Hmm, I will try to do an in-place upgrade without actually deleting
anything.  I can't promise that it will go well because we'll be
upgrading from a very ancient version and I don't know right now if the
schema has changed incompatibly.

I'll do a backup too FWIW.

To begin with, I intend to add hooks to close patchwork patches on merge
so that that aspect is automated.  It was the one problem we had with
patchwork and with ChangeLogs gone in glibc, we're definitely a lot more
likely to get close to that goal.
