 Replying to [comment:2 Otto42]:
 > WordPress itself doesn't do canonical for front-page's, so, there's no
 code in there to do that.

 It does when a front page is set as such in Reading Settings.

 Interestingly enough, Rosetta sites already did have a proper canonical
 URL on home page, as seen on https://ru.wordpress.org/. The difference was
 that they actually have an empty "Home" page assigned as a static front
 page in Reading Settings. The meta tag is then printed by
 `rel_canonical()` function from core.

 This page was missing on the main WordPress.org site. I've created one for
 the sake of consistency, and now `rel_canonical()` does its job as
 expected, no code changes needed :)
