No, it's not late.  If you submit a patch today, I'll consider it for
inclusion in -jumbo-1 tomorrow.

In general, my intent is for -jumbo-1's to be straightforward ports of
the latest jumbo from the previous JtR release, but with obvious problem
fixes added.  So patches that fix bugs/problems are within consideration
for -jumbo-1, whereas patches that make invasive changes or add features
are to be postponed for -jumbo-2.
