I am fine with release 4.0.0 as is. Bob, are you willing to do the legwork on this? I'm never confident of my versions of the autoutils.
Some security folks within Google will likely do a security audit of libtiff4 in the next couple months but any corresponding changes can go into 4.0.1.
Hopefully they will submit good patches.
On the basis of this discussion, I think it makes sense for me to wait for a final 4.0.0 release, assuming that happens relatively quickly. It would be a couple of weeks before I would have time to prepare the new debian packages anyway, and I also have to coordinate with the release team since the transition to 4.0.0 will be relatively disruptive, but necessary and very worth doing. Thanks all.
