Security release process
Security dot releases are done for high and medium level severity security issues. The general steps are:
- 1.A pull request for the issue is submitted and dev/QA reviewed, and then merged.
- 2.The bug fix is cherry-picked to the relevant release branch.
- 3.A release candidate (e.g. 7.2.1-RC1) is cut for quick final smoke tests.
- 4.After QA approval, a final release build is cut (e.g. 7.2.1) which is ready to be shared with the customer.
