Description

Replicant 6 0003 includes upstream security update up until November 2017. There are more recent security updates available that could be merged into Replicant 6 that haven't been merged yet. They should be merged.

History

#1 Updated by Kurtis Hanna 11 months ago

There are some nightly builds of the dev branch of Replicant 0004. These builds have the upstream security patches updated up until this summer, which is roughly 8 months of updates.

What would be needed for the developing branch with the security updates to be merged into the stable/master branch?
If it's just about testing, I can build and test some images for i9100, i9300, n7100.
I can make that if it serves the purpose to move dev to stable.

Otherwise, what are the blockers to merging upstream security updates directly into the stable/master branch?
I can have a look into doing so, if it's feasible..

#3 Updated by Joonas Kylmälä 7 months ago

There is no master branch in Replicant. The security patches are already in the replicant-6.0 branches but a new release tag just needs to be added after we have done all the other tickets planned for this release.

#4 Updated by Kurtis Hanna 6 months ago

Are there other upstream security updates that we can pull, or are we up to date on this?
