Can you also explain what the changes are that you're making?  That
might be very helpful.

I'm also curious if someone suggested that you break apart the patch
into a separate one for each program?  In my opinion that actually
made it harder to review the patch set (especially when I was cc'ed on
the one for tune2fs, but not the patch that set $tune2fs :-).

My suggestion would be to break it apart by functional changes.  If
the main change is to support different version numbers emitted by a
wide range of version numbers, just say something like: fixed the
version number detection of the FOO, BAR, and BAZ packages.
