Bug reports from the beta are starting to surface on the user's list.
Here is the procedure for dealing with them:
* Apply the fix to the trunk.
* Wait until enough regression tests have cycled to demonstrate that the
fix worked and didn't break anything else.
* Apply the fix to branches/release.
* Keep an eye on the release test results to be sure there were no
In other words, there is no need to ask the release managers for
permission to apply to branches/release as long as tests are clean. The
whole point of doing a beta is to shake these user detected bugs out of
the woodwork and apply the resulting fixes in time for the release.
