Thanks for doing this! On a first high level review, this looks very
good. I have one question in patch 1. From Tuesday on, I'll be
off-the-net for two weeks. Still I think it will be all good for the 5.9
merge window unless we encounter an unexpected problem. But as said, so
far it is looking good!
