Hi! Yes, I was intending to do an upload -- sorry for the lack of
coordination. Things have been rather hectic. Jamie Strandboge has
updates to the scripts and the blacklists (which we are publishing to
Ubuntu stable security updates shortly).

Certainly. I'd like to split "openssl-blacklist" binary package
(default key sizes) from "openssl-blacklist-extra" (uncommon key sizes),
as has been done in openssh-blacklist.
Is there already a svn for openssl-blacklist? If I could be added to
that project ('keescook-guest' on alioth) and the Uploaders list, I'd be
happy to help with the package, and help get Jamie's changes into Debian.
