Hai Louis,
I guess it will be at least tough to release source code and packages at the same time in an open source project, but are you taking a day off to make this happen? 😉
Hello Karolin,
does this kind of announcement really make sense as essentially it kind of implies to take DCs down until one rebuilt samba from source or Louis and other repo maintainers are able to catch up?
I am sure a hacker will spare some time to leverage that window of opportunity.
Afaik, best practice is to publish information about vulnerabilities after the software has been released.
Thanks & Best Regards,
