The contents look fine.

However, it's from an open hosting site - github. Which is fine, I
take pull requests from github all the time.  But I require that they
be sent using a signed tag, so that I can verify that yes, it's really
from you.

And no, I don't do pgp email, even t hough I see that there's a
signature on your email itself.

git uses pgp too, but unlike pgp email signatures, the git support for
pgp signing is useful and user-friendly and just _works_, rather than
the complete and useless disaster that is pgp email [1].

So please make it a signed tag with "git tag -s" and ask me to pull
that tag instead.
