release-4-5-patches and master have diverged and will diverge more in 
the near future.
We would of course like to have all bug fixes of 4.5 into master. But we 
need to come
up with a proper policy for doing this, as it could soon become very 
So please do not commit any merges or bug-fixes into master which are 
also in 4.5-patches
without explicit authorization from the core developers.

We will soon announce the policies and release plans for the near future.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
