We’ve avoided this to a point on OSX & FreeBSD by getting the upstream patch included in homebrew and FreeBSD pkg promptly, pointing to the “secret” 17.3.4 tarball or before that was available including the single patch. I am sure the OTP team has good reasons for not doing the full publicity run, but a simple announcement email of the new unofficial release tag on the ML would be a great compromise in ensuring distro packages are able to be updated, hopefully with minimising additional work on their side.
