I think that’s right.

Thanks for all the switft work. Here's my understanding of the situation:

  *   7.6.2 has a bug (#7748) in it, which also appears in a lesser form in 7.6.1.
  *   SPJ has a fix, that works for the minimal code given in the bug report.
  *   Others are now trying to verify it fixes the bug as it was discovered in the wild, in the hets package.
  *   Assuming it does fix, Ian will prepare a 7.6.3 release which is just this bug fix as a delta from 7.6.2.
If that is the state of the world, then we'll delay the HP 2012.2.0.0 a week for 7.6.3.

- Mark
