I'm unclear why the subject of this email train is 6.2 epsg version - I 
presume it is a typo for 6.11.2.

Version 6.11.2 of the EPSG dataset has been sent to our web master for 
public release. He is usually pretty quick at doing what is necessary and it 
would not surprise me if the release is available some time on Monday.

The only change to v6.11.1 is the reinstatement of the 4 CRSs 2172-2175 for 
Poland. We have run two independent checks which confirmed that these seem 
to be the only records that went missing, although we have been unable to 
trace the cause - I would guess human error!

v6.11.1 corrects errors in v6.11 for Carolina and Hong Kong CRSs. It also 
adds additional new data, as summarised in the release note. v6.11 has been 
withdrawn and should not be used.
