cURL 的維護老大放話要大家注意接下來的安全性更新：「An alert on the upcoming 7.51.0 release」。
最少 11 個安全性更新：
This release will bundle no less than _eleven_ security advisories and their associated fixes (unless we get more reported in the time we have left).
由於這些 security issue 的特性，會採取不公開的 branch 修正再 merge 回來，再加上這麼大的數量，對於穩定性的衝擊是未知的：
Merging eleven previously non-disclosed branches into master just before a release is not ideal but done so to minimize the security impact on existing users when the problems get known.
所以目前的規劃是會在 release 的 48 個小時前公開 (希望藉由這封信讓有能力的人一起集中來看)，藉此來降低衝擊：
My plan is to merge them all into master and push around 48 hours before release, watch the autobuilds closesly, have a few extra coverity scans done and then fix up what's found before the release.
