As I cannot remember what we did in the last fork to stable, I assume I

I also assume that I don't need to do anything special with regard to
'Patchy' (that just merges staging and master)?

I'll start a tracker and try to start work on that tonight.

Anything else, as Patch Meister, that I should care about?
