Hi all,

as promised, we have created a branch for the stabilization of the
3.4.x releases, called 'libreoffice-3-4'. It is based on master, last
pull on April 1, 2011 at about 12am UTC.

The following rules apply:

        + only bugfixes allowed
        + no approval needed during beta phase (two weeks after branch)
        + 1 approval needed during rc phase
        + 2 approvals with different/no affiliation needed for late

Please commit fixes into the branch to make sure that we have them in
the release. All changes will be regularly merged into master, so you
need NOT commit them twice.

The 'master' branch is used for 3.5 development and has the rules:

        + free commit; do your best to do not break build and
        + any development allowed

For further information about the roadmap, please check


Now, if you want to switch your clone to the libreoffice-3-4 branch,

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-3-4 origin/libreoffice-3-4

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; ie. libreoffice-3-4 when you have switched to it.  This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Happy hacking,
