First off - apologies no one has even looked at your v2 yet. If after a
week no one looks, please feel free to just ping the cover letter and
usually that helps get someone to look or direct at the right person.
August is a month where many take vacations so series do get lost in the
volume of upstream postings at times. Generally for network things like
this I defer to Laine as he understand the comings and goings in that
space much more so than I do.
Considering your other changes, could you just update this series with
all the changes to use switch's instead of if/then logic and repost one
you ensure that for each patch you can 'make check syntax-check'. I
have a feeling patch3 just merges into patch2.
Some of the text you put in here could be used to beef up the commit
messages for each patch which are too sparse... The commit message text
should describe the change or addition and not just be a single line header.
I think you would need to add a docs/news.xml article. But wait until
4.8.0 opens in order to repost. Should be soon anyway.
