I took the patch as is, but I'll add a follow up patch to slightly change

a) For the release, really have 4.7.5 on top. The first commit after that
should then list 4.7.6 on top.
b) create a brief note at the end of the changes that mentions the change
in approach :-)

Thank you. That really helps me as a starting point for the announcement.
It's kinda silly how much little things like this help me. I just walked
away from the conference I'm attending and will skip the evening event and
instead work on this release.

I'll phrase it slightly differently ("use at your own risk" sounds a bit
strong), but definitely something I'll add.

I think we will learn as we go. The positive changes we've made over the
past six months certainly seem to be having an impact.
