Subject Re: [Bug 55841] Misleading news items on bugfix releases ("This version of httpd is a major release of the [...]")
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 16:09:38 GMT
Hi Vincent,

thanks for the explanation, but I still believe that this bug is a bit
borderline. I didn't see any discussion in the bug and no +1 to support the
request, this is why I closed it (probably mistakenly). We can discuss it
in this mailing list and adapt the announcement text if we feel necessary,
let's wait for more opinions :)

Thanks!

Luca
