I'll try:

 - slurping your integration branches,
 - teasing the topics apart out of your 'pu',
 - populating my rerere database to match your confict resolution,
 - reconstructing the Meta/Reintegrate insn for 'pu', and
 - rebuilding 'pu' to make sure the end result matches yours

and then push the result out to the usual places listed at

I haven't had enough time to go through the new/updated patches in
tree to look at them carefully (let alone peeking into patches that
are not in 'pu'), but it appears to me that the list has been busy
adding quality fixes and enhancements while I was away.

I'll move this to the Cooking category (caught it by looking at the
output of "Meta/cook -w").

When scripts give 'echo' and '$path' (two args), does this change
allow the 'echo' command to see the value of $path (coming from
$sm_path), or just the not-useful-because-not-exported variable name

I suspect no amount of thinking is enough to avoid fallout from this
change.  People will not read advertisement and will complain.

Thanks for leaving a good note here.
Will take a look at that follow-up in tomorrow's integration cycle.

Funny that you did not "decide" as the interim maintainer ;-)
I'll squash these two, per $gmane/235339, and have it advance,
perhaps in tomorrow's integration cycle.

There seem to be many topics marked for 'master' but have been
cooking in 'next' for very long.  Will start moving them later this
week (i.e. not today, not tomorrow).

Likewise for the ones slated for 'next'.
