Thanks. I'm happy to live with new feature releases only every 18 months in the external backport.
Before inclusion there is one obsolete feature I'd like to remove (mocksignature) and two minor features I'd like to add (support for attribute deletion and a helper function for mocking open as a context manager). Beyond that the api is stable. A bunch of Python 2 compatibility code can also be removed in the standard library version.
All the best,

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
