You already got an answer to this question, and you replied:

If you want it in 8.3 you are going to need some community members to
take ownership of the patch, take responsibility for it, testing it, etc,
and argue that a feature addition that arrived in July should be added.
Not impossible, but you are going to need advocates for this.
