Hi all,

The tag libreoffice- (AKA 5.1 Beta1) has been
created on the libreoffice-5-1 branch.

The branch will be used for fine tuning of the 5.1 Release Series.

for the detailed schedule of the 5.1.0 release.

Master will be used for development of LibreOffice 5.1.x

The following rules apply:
   + 5.1.0 beta phase:

       + any bug fixes are allowed without review
       + late features need approval by 3 people with different affiliation

   + 5.1.0 rc phase and later:

       + fixes need approval by one reviewer
       + late features need approval by 3 more people with different

   IMPORTANT: Every developer is responsible for pushing the fixes into all
              appropriate branches. Note that we do not plan any merge
              from this branch to master or vice versa.

   Please, help use to make stable and usable release. If you want to build
   something cool, unstable, and risky, use master.

The 'libreoffice-5-0' branch is still active and will be used for the
5.0.4 bugfix release. Please


Now, if you want to switch your clone to the branch, please do:

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-5-1 origin/libreoffice-5-1

To checkout the tag, use

./g fetch --tags
./g checkout -b libreoffice-

Hopefully it will work for you :-)  Most probably, you will also want to
do (if you haven't done it yet):

git config --global push.default tracking

When you do git push with this, git will push only the branch you are
on; e.g. libreoffice-5-1 when you have switched to it.  This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Linux distro packages might find source tarballs at

They will soon be available from the official page together with the builds.

Attached is the list of changes against 5.1 Alpha1
