Great, I'll update today the grep-dctrl(1) man page accordingly (it
ships many runtime messages in e.g. the DIAGNOSTICS section). About the
manpages (and their translations), is it OK to continue working on them
on master (and I'll cherry pick the needed changes in maint-2.20), do
you prefer me to work the other way around (work in maint-2.20 and
rebase the changes on master later), or something else?

Will take care of it within an hour or so, thanks.

Great, I may ask for translation one or two day before this deadline
(some translators are always a bit late ;-).

Very good, thanks a lot for this proposed working scheme.
