We also still support the 1.3 line, according to the 1.4 release notes.
I have no problem with us publishing a patch for 1., if it means
that we can avoid recreating a build environment. As Justin says, it
also probably helps avoid user confusion, and I suspect it's easier to
upload a patch+sig to CollabNet than all the zip/tar files and sigs.
However, even if we release a patch, we still need to:
- backport to the 1.x line in question and produce a patch
- apply the patch to the 1.x tarball
- get signatures for testing (signed against the patch)
- release note
