Re: Sorry, but Google were uttely wrong.
"So MS were holding off until the very last possible moment before releasing the patch and hoping Google would relent? They were happy with 92 days but not 90? Doesn't Patch Tuesday roll around every week?"
No it is not. It is the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Thus depending on when the report is sent in, MS can have only 2 cycles or 3 before the 90 days are up. Given this window, I can see waiting another 2 days in this case as a reasonable delay since the fix is supposedly included. Given that MS has a fixed fix release schedule (which they recently broke once to issue an emergency 'Can Not Wait Until Fix Tuesday" fix) I can see that 90 days can be a bad fit and 3 Fix Tuesdays can be a better period. OTOH: There needs to be some cap on the delay beyond 90 days.
