Great!  Be sure to adhere to the contributing guidelines

Until we see the change, we can't say their is interest in
merging the change HEAD, let alone 2.1.

More 2.1 releases can be expected...  (and soon).

No point in that just yet.  Better to wait until after the
patch (with or without changes) has been accepted into HEAD.
Then, depending on issue being addressed, a determination
will be made whether to backport to 2.1 and how.  In most
cases the backport is done by the release engineer.
