No, it was a consious decision to do just to piss you off, glad to see
it worked :)

Come on, give me a break, Tiago asked that we do releases as soon as we
know about a security problem. was released because of this,
and all users were told to upgrade. Is the fact that I add the magic
word "security" in a sentance in the email some specific requirement
that will make you happy?

Take a look at the words I used, if someone can't determine if they
should upgrade or not based on that, then they need to rely on a company
to provide updates for them, and not be running their own kernels
because they really have no clue about system management.

Bah, what a joke.
