Subject Re: Getting ready for 1.2.1
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2015 20:22:13 GMT
Hi All,

I've gotten a couple of requests from a couple of folks about some
important patches that should be part of 1.2.1, if we do have
additional RCs, to keep the branch unfrozen, so I'm unfreezing it
again for the time being. The same rules hold as before - to make any
commits to branch-1.2, it should have already been committed to master
and branch-1, and must be added to the wiki over at
. If you do not have permission to edit the wiki, please ping me, and
I'll add it for you.
