I missed sending out this email earlier, but v2.27.1 of
git-filter-repo was released a week and a half ago.  v2.27.0
accidentally broke the most prominent example in the file;
v2.27.1 fixes that bug /and/ makes sure that example is actually in
the testsuite to prevent a repeat.

The public repo of filter-repo is at

The tarballs can be found at:

git-filter-repo can also be installed via a variety of package managers
across Windows, Mac OS, or Linux (and maybe others)[1].
