Subject Re: [INFO]: minor Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 respin release is coming
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 17:10:13 GMT
So long as it is 3.4.1a or something like that - there is something that
marks it as a different release version to be voted on, all is fine. It
could be for all it matters to me, so long as it has a
different version no. As Graham says, 3.4.1 has been voted on and
released, and therefore cannot be re-released. The rest is about how you
market it to your users, which really seems to be what you are talking

and you're cleared to release v3.4.1, v3.4.1 is now cast in stone and you can't change those
sources without invalidating that vote.
