If you must wait, well, then you must.

The commits you found seem to suggest already that there is support for
clipping the message, but hey, what do I know, maybe the mood changed
over the years.

Since I have to re-run CI/PR builds regularly that failed due to t5516,
I will be very tempted _not_ to wait, though.

Probably.

A code comment about a test case that is not in the very vicinity of
said comment is _prone_ to get stale.

In other words: this information does not belong into a code comment. It
belongs into the commit message.

If you needed any indication that this is true: I would not have missed
this important piece if it had been in the commit message (instead of
the code with whose added complexity I disagree).

Ciao,
Dscho
