Hi all,

Bug #2974687 [0] originates from a bug in the PHPExcel library, which
will be solved in a future release of that library.
What do you think is the best way to incorporate this fix in our codebase?
1) Apply only the patch needed to fix this bug to our version of the
PHPExcel library?
2) Or wait for a new release of that library, and upgrade the PHPExcel
library in our codebase?

2) Seems the better thing to do, because we avoid to have to maintain
a seperate version of PHPExcel, and in a future release some bugs
other bugs are probably solved. But it is also a big change to the
code, so it might require some testing. Hence the bug will only be
fixed in 3.4-dev
1) will fix the bug faster and requires less testing, has less impact,
hence it can be solved in 3.3.3-dev, but we'll miss out on other
bugfixes in the library and have a PHPExcel-version that differs from
the original project.

Or both 1) and 2) can be done.

What do you think?
