Well, I guess I need to follow the mailing list more closely; if I did,
I'd probably have already known that.  :)

I don't know, for what we're paying you, I think something like a 1-hour
turnaround time would be more appropriate...  ;)

I didn't know about that URL.  That's 8 years of faithful, thankless
maintenance.  Thanks for your work on Org.  :)

By the way, I'm curious, not having always followed the internal details
of Org's development over the years: why are changes like that made to
emacs.git and merged back into Org, instead of being made in Org and
then merged back into Emacs with the next sync?  It seems like it could
be a burden, requiring someone like you to track them and merge them,
but there's probably a good reason for this workflow.
