Yep, I'm very sorry about that. The old script I used had been a bit
fragile so I stopped using it for the last few merge windows
but tried something simpler this time. I had the sequence numbers
in the script but forgot to actually write them out in the subject.

I think it's the first time I made /this/ mistake, they were always
numbered in the past, and usually also had distinct time stamps.

Yes, of course. It was an obvious mistake and I would have rejected
it the same way coming from my downstream maintainers. Sorry about
bothering you with this and your lenghty reply. I hope you don't
mind the contents, and I'll follow up with the same pull requests
again, using sequence numbers.
