Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 updated (r6)

This is the sixth and final update of Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (codename
`woody') which mainly adds security updates to the stable release,
along with a few corrections to serious problems.  Those who
frequently update from security.debian.org won't have to update many
packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in
this update.

Please note that this update does not produce a new version of Debian
GNU/Linux 3.0 but only adds a few updated packages to it.  There is no
need to throw away 3.0 CDs but only to update against ftp.debian.org
after an installation, in order to incorporate those late changes.

Upgrading to this revision online is usually done by pointing the
`apt' package tool (see the sources.list(5) manual page) to one of
Debian's many FTP or HTTP mirrors.  A comprehensive list of mirrors is
available at:


Please note that packages from non-US.debian.org are currently only
available on its mirrors due to the problems the project has encountered
on the host klecker.
