I don't like that. If it were just a packaging issue, I'd accept a re-release 
of the same code. Since it isn't, since there is more than just packaging and 
copyright headers, it should be called 4.8.4.

And it should include the SSL fix. That's more important than even the MinGW 

Now, I'm not asking you to restart the whole release process and test 
everything, which takes days and people who are busy with Qt 5. You said you 
have the packages already. What we're asking is that:

 1) apply the SSL fix
 2) change the version number to 4.8.4
 3) rebuild the packages

And in the repository, do the procedure that Stephen suggested. We won't 
release out of the branch, but instead we'll create the tag based on the 
contents of the release. It's backwards, but it works.

I can't do that and Stephen can't do that because we don't have the permission 
to send merge commits to Gerrit. Only people in this group can:
Ask one of them to do it.
