PR 998: Just add 'needs author' and wait for vanitasvitaes input?
Maybe ask melvo to link to the discussion (not sure whether this was on standards@ or private).
sounds both good :)
though, linikng to the discussion would mainly be meant for the author to understand the change
in this case, asking for a link is thus not necessary
But if there exists an discussion on a mailing list linking it might be good for future reference ('why did we do this change back in 2020?'), right? So it's not necessary but kindly asking for a link if existing can't do any harm and might be useful I think.
