I think the best course of action is to say the supported version of
ldb for 4.6 is the version it shipped with, nothing else. There is
nothing gained by including the more recent patches, only risk.
I would suggest to un-release the 1.1.30 and 1.1.31 versions from the
download page to avoid packaging by distributions (replace with a note
saying they are withdrawn).

Sorry to be a bother, but due to timezones and the few working hours
before the freeze I need to ask to ensure I apply my time most
What are the next steps I need to do to progress this?
