P.S.: If you wonder why this is v2.24.1(2) and not v2.24.1: The initial
rebase broke the built-in `git add -p` and by the time this was noticed, I
had already asked helpers to test the version, and to avoid any confusion
"which v2.24.1 do I have?" I decided to simply not release that broken
v2.24.1 and jump immediately to v2.24.1(2).
