Thanks for the effort for automatically patches.

Please note that st-scrollback-mouse-altscreen failed to be patched
because it was meant to be patched in a particular order.

1. st-scrollback
2. st-scrollback-mouse
3. st-scrollback-mouse-altscreen

I thought the patch failed but it was no the case though.

Any suggestion for this? Should the patched be made a single shot?
