I think this is the right place to discuss this.

but, how many other releases are we planning for 4.8.x ? I think it's better to focus on the Qt 5 release process that Thiago sent some days ago.

Subject: [Development] How to release critical fixes?

Hello all,

Following the discussion concerning 4.8.3-1 vs 4.8.4, I think an important
gap on the workflow has been exposed: how to release critical patches? I am
not sure if this makes sense, since I am entirely not acquitanted to the
entire release process, but would anyone have any suggestion or comments on
how we could issue these exceptional releases that should only include highly
critical fixes (i.e. the SSL one)? Feedback?
