Speaking of releases, linux for example has some releases that are
more stable than others, as most distros pick the same release for
their 'stable' release, whereas the regular and new releases are just
off of the latest release of linux.

Would a similar model be an interesting thought to entertain?

I guess I could buy into a few weeks of bug fixing.

Thanks Duy for these two series!

I would have expected the no-extern series to
have a bit of merge conflicts similar to  sb/object-store-lookup
as it touches a lot of headers, but so far this looks like smooth sailing?

Oh, that is the prologue of
which I will resend to build on top. Given your question to hunt more bugs,
I'd delay its resend until after the release.

I am not sure; why does it feel iffy?

Cool! Is the discussion on top of it still going whether to use a
new config for special cases or how we distinguish between a/b/
and a%2fb as submodule names?

I gave this a read and think it is good to go.

No, this series doesn't tweak the colored range-diff.
This might be:

  Add more test coverage to colored range-diff and
  refactor the diff machinery to be more readable.
  The test coverage proves no user visible changes
  are made.

The tweaking comes in on top of this via
