To avoid confusion, feel free to keep the security in the loop and send
updates to them.
FWIW: Up to today (still 8000 mails to go, though, there's a small
chance that an answer is within them), I still don't know what to
to with the updates to crip, bzip2, cvs and ht, that were in the
queue at the time sarge was released. I asked both Ryan and the
ftpmaster team, without receiving an answer, hence the security
team can only assume that the status from the time sarge was released
is still true: security.debian.org broken.
I don't like abusing my root permission to fix areas where I shouldn't
intervene, hence I'm trying to avoid this on security.debian.org as

Because they sent inquiries about the situation and haven't yet received
a note that everything is fine again and how to proceed with the updates
already in the queue.

No uploads have been made since the release of sarge, because the archive
is broken. What you could have seen was made before the release of sarge.
I have had prepared more than half a dozen uploads but did not upload them,
I've uploaded a few packages now to find out if it's working again.
I don't expect the next DSAs to work properly, though.
