I saw that in pu, thanks for squashing. I should have spoken
up earlier confirming it.

I'll look into that after I finish looking at a submodule related bug.

I'll try to find my balance again.

When working on too few topics at the same time, sometimes I get stalled
waiting for the mailing list (or internal reviewers) to respond, so I start many
topics, which then overwhelm me after a while once reviews catch up.

In this specific case it was not clear what the best way is, i.e. the
interest was
rather broad: "Hey I have this blob sha1, how do I get more information?",
which can be solved in many different ways, so I tried some of them.
(Another alternative just now considered: I could have wrapped that
script from stackoverflow into a new command and called it a day, though that
has very poor benefits for the rest of ecosystem, an addition to an established
powerful command gives more benefits IMHO)

Thanks,
Stefan
