Yes, it does make sense.

If we were to spend engineering effort to cut a 2.29.1, however,
we'd better make sure not just this fix but all the other fixes
relevant to the 2.29 track that are already well tested are included
in it.  We just issued 2.30 and not many people are using it to
exercise a relatively new negative pathspec feature yet, so it
probably is a good idea to spend a weeks or two to enumerate what
other things we want to be in the 2.29 maintenance track.

I personally do not have time for doing that myself right now, but
luckily it is something contributors like you can step in to help
;-)

Thanks.
