Raising my hand here ...

One more hand. 

But I'd like to stress we need *all* developers to be involved fix bugs (esp. security) in their packages in all the supported releases, not only in current-stable. Having a team of people like Mike, Michael, Gustavo, me, etc to take care of EVERY package is plain impossible, especially if we want 5 years support for the *whole* archive (IMHO Ubuntu did a smart move in regards to support when it split the archive in main/universe/multiverse and decided to support only main).
