Are we able to get advance notice of SQLite security releases or do we
have to react to public releases? Take 3.7 for example, how many of the
releases fixed security issues and would have triggered a new Subversion
release? Do we allow developers to make changes to our copy of SQLite
or do we insist that the Subversion copy is pristine? I identified
umask as an SQLite problem in January and SQLite released in March.
Suppose we had wanted to release Subversion in February, would we have
released with the umask bug, or patched our copy of SQLite or delayed
the release?
