I hope you are teasing, or perhaps you didn't see my first sentence
where I stated that I had not seen any other news about this. I have
been subscribed to d-a, as well as d-s, and d-i, and d-v..... the
problem was the updates hit the mirrors before the announcement hit
the wire. Normally this wouldn't be much of an issue, but the formal
signed announcement is the only way for most of us to know that the
updates are legit and not a nefarious action by some rogue hacker.
