This update was unfortunately a bit problematic, to make the story short uw-imap was uploaded as 7:2007b~dfsg-4 but we then requested to upload this as -3+lenny1 to mark it as a security update and to prevent broken updates in case 7:2007d~dfsg-1 gets rejected from NEW (in -3+lenny1 is also the upstream tarball change). Unfortunately -3+lenny1 was rejected on klecker because the orig.tar.gz of the old build was still lying around in the queue. As we can not use the same version twice on klecker -4+lenny1 was uploaded as a rebuild of -3+lenny1 and the upstream tarball change was overlooked in that chaos. > As it is the vulnerable version of uw-imap will remain in Lenny and > Lenny will have a known security bug that is totaly avoidable.

I see two possibilities here, one option is to get 8:2007b~dfsg-1 unblocked and let this migrate to lenny (there is some weird SONAME change though) or to reupload a +lenny2 version to testing-security again.
