    That would be because I don't keep it in that tree. It is in a quilt
    tree you can find in the stable-queue.git repo, and I have never tagged
    -rc1 releases there. No one has ever asked for it before, so in the
    past 6 years of stable releases, I guess no one ever needed it.

    ketchup and tarballs seem to work well for others, perhaps you can use
    that as well (hint, ketchup on top of the linux-stable tree works just
    fine for testing this.)
