I've confirmed no tests were lost, and when running this horrible

grep "^\[" master/*.std* | cut -f 2- -d\]|perl -p -i -e

On a Catalyst Cloud build of your branch and master, producing a
logs.tar.gz and extracting them, I get the attached diff.  We seem to
build some things more often, but otherwise it all seems reasonable.

I'll confirm the config.h files after lunch.

Finally, I've made comments in the gitlab branch.  Please read them
before overwriting the branch.

In short, I would like to have an instruction on how to dump a pristine
waf from a well-known URL on the top and see no diff, so I don't have
to review that.  Otherwise I just found little niggles and rebase

I'm just as keen as you are to get this in, so please focus on
addressing the concerns rather than a perfect patch stream, as we must
not let this slide.  Once development continues this will break, so we
need to land it. 

If you can get ita to sign his commits that would be great, otherwise
sign them yourself and link to where he clearly contributed them on

Thanks for all the hard work here!
