Status of 4.6.1

Unfortunately the release of 4.6.1 has been delayed for various
reasons including very recently discovered vulnerabilities.  The
release engineers do not wish to roll a release that includes
known security flaws.  We are also still waiting on a few serious
bug fixes to be merged into the RELENG_4_6 branch.  Since the
RELENG_4_6 branch already has a tag for 4.6.1 and since the
branch has had the name 4.6.1-RELEASE for over a week already,
the security-officer and release engineering teams feel that it
would be less confusing to rename the pending release to 4.6.2.
Unfortunately, a few things were done prematurely in the handling
of 4.6.1, and we have learned from that mistake.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask us.  Thanks.
