Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 updated

The Debian project has updated the stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux
3.1 (codename `sarge').  This update 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

Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian
GNU/Linux 3.1 but only updates some of the packages included.  There is
no need to throw away 3.1 CDs.  Instead you only need to update against
ftp.debian.org or a mirror after an installation, in order to incorporate
those changes.  New CD and DVD images are being built right now and will
be available soon at the regular locations.

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:
