About the security issues affecting fex in Squeeze
the Debian LTS team recently reviewed the security issue(s) affecting your

If you want to work on such an update, you're welcome to do so. Please
try to follow the workflow we have defined here:
If that workflow is a burden to you, feel free to just prepare an
updated source package and send it to email@example.com
(via a debdiff, or with an URL pointing to the the source package,
or even with a pointer to your packaging repository), and the members
of the LTS team will take care of the rest. However please make sure to
submit a tested package.
Thank you very much.
on behalf of the Debian LTS team.
