Re: How to handle an update that includes a regression fix and a new fix?

Hi Roberto

Others may have a different opinion but I do not see a big problem with that.
Make a regular DLA with a note that it also contained a regression fix.
Alternatively we issue two DLAs referring to the same software version.
I do not know which approach is the best, but I think both work.

If such a thing is not advisable or permissible, then is it best to
handle the regression as one update and then follow-up with the new
vulnerability fix as a subsequent update?
