So what?

The OpenSSH maintainers knowingly deceived the Security Team and
forced them to install an update for potato which introduced a
security defect (among other things, some functionality was broken,
too).  This was far worse than this childish behavior, and yet Debian
still distributes OpenSSH.  And from a technical point, this is the
right thing to do.
