[libreoffice-l10n] [ANNOUNCE] Branch libreoffice-4-0 created

Hi all,

as promised, we have created a branch for the stabilization of the
4.0.x releases, called 'libreoffice-4-0'. It is based on master, last
pull on Decemebr 4, 2012 at about 16pm UTC. See also the tag

The following rules apply:

+ only bugfixes are allowed
+ no approval needed during beta phase until January 7, 2013
+ 1 approval needed during rc phase and upcoming bug fix releases
+ 3 approvals with different/no affiliation needed for late

IMPORTANT: Every developer is responsible for pushing fixes into all
appropriate branches. Note that we do not plan any merge
from this branch to master or vice versa.

Please, help use to make stable and usable 4.0.0 release.
Do not forget to push useful fixes to this branch.

"git cherry-pick commit-id" is your friend :-)

The 'master' branch is used for 4.1 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-4-0 branch,

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-4-0 origin/libreoffice-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-4-0 when you have switched to it. This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Happy hacking,
