You're welcome to verify what I am stating, but I have reported all the steps I have taken in my mail.

What has the security team answered?

Zilch (maintainer's "no" reply was CC'ed to security@debian.org, too).

Why didn't you simply reopen the bug?

I thought about that, but my friends suggested that I open a new one asking for a backport (or similar measure). If you believe the appropriate action in this case would have been reopening the report, please let me know, so I won't make the same mistake twice.

BTW, for everyone: I'm subscribed to the debian-devel list, no need to CC me.
