Concluding change to for upcoming 5.24.2 and 5.22.4
Message ID:
Hi everyone,

As we are approaching our latest stable stable release updates (5.24.2
and 5.22.4), we intended to resolve Here is our update on this.

We originally had a more aggressive patch to, but with the
suggestion of Michael Schroeder, Aristotle had started work on an
alternative, more accurate patch. This work is available in the
following branch:


(Aristotle has hit a snag in an edge case he could explain better than
I, and is happy to receive any assistance on resolving it.)

As this patch is still superior to our more canvas approach originally
intended, we will be merging it instead. If anyone has any suggestions
or comments, this is a good time.

I must, however, assure you that "Not patching at all" will not be
regarded as a possible action-plan, no matter how long and exhausting
the email content might be, as security is taking precedence here, and
this has been clarified several times before. :)

Thank you,
