The end result of data security processes should lead you to backups or some other contingency plan, no shoving arbitrary software into stable because it scratches your itch. Instead of blowing the computer security horn because that horn happens to have resources attached to it, you should pursue the general systems maintenance horn because that's what this problem is.

Ack. But there should be a way to fix rc-bugs even
after release.

I fully agree that this bug doesn't deserve a security update, but I see no reason for not fixing in 4.0r4 what would normally be considered a release critical bug.

Since there is not urgency to release, or security issues involved, It would be easy to publicly ask people to test the fix in order to get better testing.

I my opinion, the only proper period to include those fix are when there is a new revision, or maybe before if there is another problem that already deserve a DSA and that the security team feels comfortable to include both fix at the same time.

But there should be an official way to get major problems fixed when the risk of breaking somethings is low enough.
