I think you've missed at least part of Jim's point ...

Ayup, I do think you did.  Over his boss's dead body he will ....

The two points he wants, I think, are

(1) the certification that comes with an Official Release, and

(2) Minimal Change (addressing *only* the security issues) from the
current Official Stable Release.  Maybe even a patch for the previous
O.S.R., since many people give a release a bit of time to shake down.

*How* those changes get into his installation are (at this point) a
secondary concern.
