Failing to merge fixes into release is a major problem.
For 1.41.0, I contacted three or four maintainers where I was very sure
there were unmerged changes. That resulted in those libraries getting
merged. I was going to set up a procedure to report unmerged libraries, but
got distracted and never did it.
