I don't see a public bug or post for commit
bc680b336971305cb39896b30d72dc7101b62242, did they get stuck
or miss getting sent?
Could you please create a bug on sourceware for this issue that
we can use to track backports?
Please remember to post public patches for review even if you think
they are trivial. And defects that have user visible impact need a
bug report. If you are interested in being the regex/ subsystem
maintainer for glibc you could have assumed-consensus and commit
these patches when ready, but you would still have to post them.

eventually it was merged into glibc. The bug was found by
project-repo <firstname.lastname@example.org> and reported here:
Diagnosis and draft fix reported by Assaf Gordon here:
