To be exact, I asked Dominik whether he can have a look at it
and review it (and ask the Release Team) because I currently
lack time to do that in-depth and he’s eager to help RC bug fixing…

From the pkg-mw side this would of course be preferred because
it would make later fixes easier, and the MW upstream sort of
agreed to support 1.19 longer for us, when we in turn keep MW
in good shape in Debian ;-)

I suggested to use diff -wup and exclude the translations;
I’ve already done that for 1.19.2.

Thanks Dominik for having a look.
