I wonder how it happened. BTW, it should be working now (next and master
are the same since the last release (v6.3.2-rc2).

I think the most sensible is to focus to v6.3.2 and encourage updates to
this releases. I started a maint branch some time ago to apply fixes
against 6.3.1 but I didn't feel to maintain it that much. I'll really
maintain older version starting up to 6.3.2. So, v6.3.2 will be the root
for fixes to apply to the 6.3 branch.
