There is already a bump to 8.44 in master. Why do you send a separate
patch doing the same thing, but for 2020.02.x ?

I think in this kind of case, we should instead reply to the commit
e-mail, and ask Peter to backport it to 2020.02.x.

However, you label it as a security bump, without saying which
vulnerability is being fixed. The original version bump commit did not
label it as a security bump.
