This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

@Azphreal note that this needs to be redone and rebased on the latest git (always run make pull prior to making any changes to a package so this doesn't happen [though it still happens a lot]).

Git was already at release 12 so it didn't merge to master (but my alias didn't exit from the failure so it pushed the branch). However, so I have nuked the branch that was created, and the repo remains at 25.3.

Sorry for that. I updated on my machine when RC-1 was released and didn't realise that the package had been bumped since then.

Should I push to this diff again or make a new one?

There is no issue pushing to this one as it never made git master
