What's the reason for only queuing it up to this point? AFAICT there's
no particular breakages past this point that would prevent the whole
thing from being queued.

I'm going to fix the issues noted on-list, but wondering what I should
do with the next submission. Do you think with fixes you'd like to
take the whole thing?

Do you prefer that I pick up JS's "compat/regex: fix compilation on
Windows" patch & re-send, or for you to add that on top after that
discussion is resolved?
