Hi all,

there have been created the libreoffice-3-4-0 branch. It will be used for fine
tuning of the 3.4.0 release. It is based on the the tag
libreoffice- for 3.4.0-rc1 release.

The following rules apply:

        + any commit has to be reviewed by 3 people
        + preferably commit only translation fixes, or blocker fixes
        + only cherry-pick from the libreoffice-3-4 branch

The 'libreoffice-3-4' branch is still active, will be used for the next
bugfix release (3.4.1), and has the following rules:

        + any commit needs review by 1 person
        + only safe fixes are allowed
        + changes are regularly merged into master

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-3-4-0 branch, please

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-3-4-0 origin/libreoffice-3-4-0

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-3-4-0 when you have switched to it.  This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Happy hacking,
