I can do, but:

I'd take the patches from the master branch, slightly different from
the ones you propose.

suggested_oob_version for 10.1.3 would still say 1.3.0, meaning that
if you tried to build 10.1.3 on 1.3.1 you'd get a warning. The wiki
will continue suggesting v1.3.0 to rebuild 10.1.3.
I don't want to change that, even if we're fairly sure that your
changes don't have any out-of-the-box impact on the resultant build.
The point of this version recording scheme is to get deployments as
close as possible to what was used for official builds.

Does that sound OK? Still interested?
