Well I tried to change bug http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=527862
to severity grave as I thought this would make this a release-critical bug but
failed to do so, please see the last mail in the thread before the solved

I know this but the above mentioned bug make almost any software depending on
libmilter unusable (or at least unstable) and as this release was uploaded to
unstable already it won't be possible to only get the important changes for
libmilter in an updated 8.14.3 version.
