Hmm. I styarted to pull, but then realized that the description
doesn't match the content at all.

But then the actual code is just one single small commit:

> Dave Wysochanski (1):

which doesn't actually match any of the things your description says
should be there.

So I undid my pull - either the description is completely wrong, or
you tagged the wrong commit.

Please double-check,
