The reason I mentioned that one is that it's another localised fix to
the regex engine which solves an infinite loop problem. I suspect that
if it winds up in testing, we'll probably see a critical bug filed about
Daniel fixed 174267 already. The -9 upload will have the fix.
Hmm. For some reason I have in my notes here that 167909 was fixed and
should have been closed.
The CVS ChangeLog has it:
- debian/patches/cvs.dpatch: Update.
(Closes: #171550, #170507, #167909)
But the one that got committed doesn't for some reasons. I also hadn't
noticed it in the build log because it seems that bugs with tags appear
near the bottom of the page. I'll have to remember to look there, too.
