Awesome, thanks!

If the change can be isolated from other changes and backported to the
how-can-i-help version currently I jessie, I wouldn't exclude the
possibility that the release team can accept it. After all, jessie's
how-can-i-help will be with us for quite some time, and it is an
important tool for attracting new contributors.

Would you mind preparing an unblock request and run it through release
team review?
