Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH 1/2] doc/security: clarify pre-release end of the embargo date
Date: Mon, 17 Jun 2019 17:06:47 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190617160648.8506-1-ferruh.yigit@intel.com> (raw)

Clarify that a fixed date will be used for end of embargo (public
disclosure) date while communicating with downstream stakeholders.

Initial document got a review that it gives an impression that
communicated embargo date can be a range like 'less than a week' which
is not the case. The range applies when defining the end of the embargo
date but a fix date will be communicated.
