Let's not forget the epic fail earlier on the "contribution.rst fix" that
almost melt down the community CI system.

For any companies that are doing what Matt mentioned, please be aware that
the dev community of the country you belong to is getting hurt by your
stupid activity.

Stop patch trolling and doing something meaningful.

> If you fixed all of the typos in a single module, or in user-facing
> documentation, or error messages, or something in the logs, or something
> that actually doesn't make sense in code comments, then maybe, but this
> isn't one of those things."
