Well, we do have CIs to show us already in the PRs...  but sometimes,
we are a bit excited and forget to pause and give them a look before

That being said, if the corrections come soon after, I don't think
much harm is done.

We do have an internal checker that double checks if we've forgotten
to look after some configuration option, and the same CIs as mentioned
above continually fully rebuilding and testing (including extended
tests) all release branches as well as master.  We have shown many
times that we do react on those fairly quickly.

So yeah, we do need to remember that PRs go through the CIs before
