Re: List of bugs that *must* be fixed before releasing Slink

Here we go with my usual comments. All from memory this time so there
are probably some mistakes.

Can we remove this package? The maintainer hasn't reacted yet and I
don't feel this is a simple fix.

Can be excluded like I already explained to you (basically this only
becomes an issue when libdpkg is split into its own package).

Already fixed, I'll change the severity.

Only an issue for potato, can be excluded.

I vaguely remember someone fixing this?

There seems to be some doubt about the severity of this. The security
team will check this out on monday.
