Hi all,

there have been created the libreoffice-3-5-1 branch. It will be used
for fine tuning of the 3.5.1 release.

It was created before the tag for 3.5.1-rc1 to avoid race condition in
the automatically generated bugzilla comments.

It was created already on Wednesday evening. I did not announce it
because the 3 reviews were not needed before the tag for rc1. I just
cherry picked all fixes from 3-5 branch. The cherry picking should not
be needed in a normal case. I plan to create the branch and tag at the
same time (within one hour). This time I was too fast with creating the
branch and did not wait for one build fix that was more complicated
than expected. I am sorry for potential confusion.

The following rules apply:

        + preferably just translation or blocker fixes
	+ only cherry-picking from libreoffice-3-5 branch
	+ 2 additional reviews needed; 2nd reviewer pushes
	+ no regular merges back to anything

The 'libreoffice-3-5' branch is still active and will be used for the
3.5.2 bugfix release. Please


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

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-3-5-0 origin/libreoffice-3-5-1

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-3-5-1 when you have switched to it.  This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Happy hacking,
