Hi Jeff,

oops. Fingers were faster than my brain. :/

I deleted all the things that I did _not_ screw up in my first email a
minute ago.

You basically already answered this below, sorry. So no, not possible. :-/

this is how this sentence should have ended:

... mpiwg-tools/mpir:issue_5_being_debugged.

So then we directly have a branch that we can use for the pull request
