Ok. Please excuse me for being stupid here. How does a stable package get
to security.debian.org? Where is it uploaded? To master.debian.org with
distribution set to "stable"? If that's the case, I presume it's a matter
of at most 24 hours for it to get installed in proposed-updates. That's
what I'm trying to understand here.

That's exactly my concern. I DO NOT want to tell people here to include
proposed-updates on their sources.list because some non-security updates
will get installed on their systems.

Yes. Exactly. Now, how do I mirror security.debian.org? (Jason, please
excuse me here, I did read your message, I did understand it, I know the
thing is not suppossed to be mirrored, but the net connection here just
sucks. A mirror would be most helpful)
