Oh, I think I understand what happened now.

There was an updated version of imagemagick made for Jessie with all the
fixes in January. However it didn't get uploaded as a security
update. Instead it got uploaded in proposed-updates. As a result there
was nothing mentioned in the security tracker.


Just recently it was moved into Jessie as a point update in the last
point release.

There is no need for me to do a security update, as the updates I was
going to do are already there.

How can we avoid duplicating efforts like this? Rereading this thread it
looks like I wasn't the only one confused.

Also: as this updated security issues, why was it uploaded to
proposed-updates and not jessie-security?
