Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] General Availability of ApacheOpenOffice 4.1.2-patch1 Hotfixes
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2016 17:27:59 GMT
[BCC to PMC, FYI to L10N and QA.]

The 4.2.1-patch1 release repository is now populated with the only localizations that we have:
English (en-US) and German (de) for all platforms plus the additional Nederland (nl) for Windows.
 The localizations took until yesterday, 2016-08-25, to be completed.

Propagation to the archive site has begun and will probably not be complete for another 24
hours.  Meanwhile, an updated CVE-2016-1513 will be prepared.  The update will be posted when
the archive is stable, along with notification to dev@ and users@.  Those actions will provide
the general availability of the Hotfix.

While minor blemishes may remain, this material will be kept stable as is unless a serious
defect is brought to our attention.  Cosmetic matters are appropriate to save for whenever
we need to do this again.

One lesson: Localizations should not hold up release in the future.  Localizations not available
during the initial dev QA and review period should not stop the train.  Supplemental localizations
are always possible.  That will likely always be the case when a hotfix is made available
along with an initial vulnerability disclosure and advisory.

 - Dennis
