Anyway I chosen to keep the previous branch as you did it so there is

BTW, pushed to https://github.com/geany/geany :) -- this is not yet a
wide announcement because there is a few thing to tune, update & qtuff,
but it's up and running.

Yep, and you're a so great mind-reader you you knew very well which
commits I would check :p
