Does the CVE fix that was mentioned in another thread get added to
5.26.1 and does that imply an RC2?

The File-Path change has been dropped from 5.26.1, so I'm not currently
planning on an RC2.

BTW, Configure doesn't yet know about gcc 6.x and 7.x, which looks like
an oversight that should be corrected:

Thanks. That's this commit:

which jhi previously suggested to me, but privately, rather than in the
voting file... That one fell off my radar, for which I apologize.

I will put it in the voting files, but I don't think it would warrant an
RC2: It's such a minor change that I think it would be fine to simply add
it to the release.
