Thanks. I'll continue to ignore them, unless I hear otherwise on this list.

I see this all the time and just ignore it. I have a feeling it's due to the miss-islington bot being triggered by some event and checking in on the PR while it is still transitioning. Occasionally I see a very large string of these and assume she's just having a bad day. Also notice that in your PR there are actually two of those failure messages, the second one being suppressed by the GitHub UI.

But maybe Mariatta has a more reasoned explanation.

Followed by the merge messages, followed by:

What do the failure messages mean? Is it because I didn't wait for the checks to complete before merging?

(It's a documentation only change that I previously committed to main without incident, so I didn't feel the need to wait for all of the checks to run before merging.)

Thanks for any insight.
