I'll most likely just wait for the next upstream release, which I expect
to come soon (they release about every other week).

Sure, I was not aware of cacti's release schedule and we are moving to 7.2
for 18.04, so just wanted you to be aware. I will sync the update once I
see it from Debian.

If I understood upstream correctly about this issue, we should just add
the line to the accepted output.

Yeah, that is what I will do in our delta, and then it should be part of
the sync if you make the same change.
