# I'm moving the discussion to rqt ML.

Coming right to the point first, I have to admit that I didn't test
enough the latest patch [0] that was commited 3 days before my latest
release, and understand the issue caused by that [1] is critical for
certain users. While we try to fix this, should we rollback to the
status before [0] and release? What's the best solution here?

I apologize first, and I'll be more cautious for the future release.

I did release twice almost by accident. I don't exactly remember why I
had to do so, but it was because I had a problem in releasing due to
my familliarity with bloom at that time.

Yes the release was necessary to apply a patch that was commited
almost 2 months ago. But again I should have tested the all commits
applied since last release.

to Dirk Thomas,
(Update) William & I decided as a quick workaround that we rollback
qt_gui_core public debian to the 0.2.12 where all commits that are not
well tested aren't included (i.e. all commits after March 21 Thank you William & possibly Tully who are now
handling this.

Meanwhile we need for sure a permanent solution to the issue raised.

to, Dirk Thomas
To be clear, because it is already in public I reverted the changes in question and release it as 0.2.15. (this is required as apt-get will not auto downgrade). Once this issue is solved those commits can be added back, fixed, and then release as 0.2.16.
