About the security issues affecting policykit-1 in Squeeze
Hello Martin & Michael,
the Debian LTS team recently reviewed the security issue(s) affecting your
package in Squeeze:
(the recent CVE affecting squeeze being the CVE-2015-3255 one)
We decided that we would not prepare a squeeze security update (usually
because the security impact is low and that we concentrate our limited
resources on higher severity issues and on the most widely used packages).
That said the squeeze users would most certainly benefit from a fixed
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
(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.
