Since I committed most of these, I'll abstain from actually voting,
but a soft +1 to all of them, except

This. I'm not sure if it's needed for 5.20; I think it might be all
due to changes in blead. The problem is that, if a file should be
copied but isn't, then one test during all of 'make test' will fail.
However, if we try to copy a file that doesn't exist in 5.20, then
*all* of make test will fail.
