direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

ohhh, sorry, will register my-self to dev, and will have a try to merge it
to 8.4.

little misunderstanding :-)

I upstream had already merged those changesets into 8.4, we would have let
you know. But they have _not_ been merged.

Here again, let me reiterate what I have mentioned a few days ago:
