Well, bf1a11f0 ("sideband: highlight keywords in remote sideband
output", 2018-08-07) clearly wanted to allow a keyword followed by
anything !isalnum() to be painted, and we accepted that change
because we thought it was a good idea, so anything that made a
keyword alone not to be painted is a bug, isn't it?  Whether output
lines from Gerrit benefits from this fix is a different matter, of

This change falls into "an obvious and small fix to a bug that went
unnoticed and is in an older release (2.19)" category, which is not
eligible for the upcoming release this late in the cycle.  I think
enough eyeballs looked at the change already, so let's not waste the
already-spent review braincycle and mark it as "Will merge to 'next'".
