I'm asking for EXPLANATION in the first post when will FIXES for bugs
resolved in MAB 3.5 be included in LO 3.6 CODE.
Adding unresolved bugs from MAB 3.5 to MAB 3.6 is another issue.

Can you please point me to the list of local partners and an
explanation of support layers? I didn't see it on the page.
Although I don't think this can really work like this: pay local
partner to fix all those MABs.

It is not a big surprise that 3.5MAB has already 3.4MAB bugs imported. Now,
most of them will become 3.6MAB, which is ridiculous.

I compared MAB 3.4 and MAB 3.5. Some bugs are on both lists. That's
not really consistent.
Bug36547 (DUPLICATE of Bug33591, which is FIXED, Whiteboard:
target:3.6.0 target:3.5.3)   Bug37024 (FIXED, Whiteboard: target:3.4.5
target:3.5.1 target:3.6.0beta0)   Bug37561 (FIXED, Whiteboard: )
Bug40482 (FIXED, Whiteboard: target:3.4.5 target:3.5.0beta3
target:3.6.0beta0)    Bug43867 (FIXED, Whiteboard: BSA)  Bug45078
(DUPLICATE of Bug40289, which is NEW)
I will delete Bug36547, add Bug33591, delete Bug45078, add Bug40289 in MAB 3.5.

Some bugs have Whiteboard filled, while others don't. Reiner informed
me that since some months developers use a script what will
automatically add the target function to the whiteboard when the fix
will be committed to the code. In early times that had to be added
manually, what was not very reliable. Even today sometimes the
developer makes a mistake and so the target info might be missing. I
think it should be updated at least for those MAB 3.5. So, if a bug in
MAB 3.5 has "Whiteboard: target:3.5.x" does it mean it's already in
3.6 branch?

Finaly, I understand that there are bugs. I just want to switch to LO
3.6 only when all fixes from 3.5 branch are added to 3.6 branch, if I
put it correctly. Is it already done with 3.6.0, or it will be done
with 3.6.1, or...?
