I've worked from your list so far, checking the stuff individually,
skipping over things that just were too rife in conflict and so on, and
using cherry-pick -x for keeping better track.  I'm not yet through the
annotated commit list you posted.  I've been working with your
preparatory work and its description but not with your branch.

Does this help you deciding where to focus?  As long as we have no
formal handoff of release manager duties (I won't rule that out
eventually but it seems like you'd deserve more preparation than what
you got), I think that's sort-of reasonable.
