the current status is: This package is only available in woody, the
current stable distribution. So, please feel free to upload it fresh
to unstable if you want (but you'll need a sponsor for this).

For woody (or any stable distribution), things are a bit outdated most
times. That is the reason why it is called stable. If you can provide
the security team with the necessary information about the nature of
the bug, they can do a security upload. Please see
for details.

For the other issues how to deal with new packages, please see
http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ and
http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ .
