We all mentioned that a week ago - but Firefox 1.0.5 and 1.0.6 which are
both arguably security releases are not available from the security team

Given the Debian security and packaging policies, they /wont/ be
available as part of Debian/stable.

The security fixes from them will be backported to the version of
Firefox that was included in /stable, though, and the package will be
released with the problems solved.


True, true.
