Before posting v3 (which I expect I'll merge), please submit a
github.com pull request as well, for your v3 topic branch. Such a PR
will never be merged, but it's good for kicking off CI (automated
builds) on your patches. If any one of the CI plugins fails on your
series, then you getting those results directly is better than me
encountering them first during an actual merge attempt.

For the above, I think you'll need to open a github.com account (in case
you don't have one yet). Running CI locally is possible, but it's so
much work (both setting up and executing) that I recommend just using a
github.com PR for CI's sake.

Thanks
Laszlo
