Asking about specifically.



In short, I'd say the answer is 'yes', if the Platform and their PMC brought if forward and it got the votes with no objections. Keep in mind the Monday and Tuesday dates were "done" sort of dates, so that means the fix must be a repo that could be used by the process, say, on Thursday.

BUT, an important difference between that case, and the MPC case is that the MPC case could only be fixed by a respin (due to the way it is "included" in the EPP packages.

As far as I know, the Platform itself is a "root feature" in the EPP packages, so if they create their own (new) repository (under .../eclipse/updates/4.6) then I believe that should be sufficient for users to get the update via "check for updates".
