Should we give security support for squid when wheezy also has squid3?


I have started to look into the packages that need work and I have a
question about squid. I can see that we have the package squid and
squid3 in wheezy.

As you can see from the below links, it is quite obvious that squid3
is in better shape from a secuirty patching point of view compared to
the squid package.

We can also see that a lot of effort has been put into the squid package
considering the number of DLAs issued (16?) for this package.

I would like to question that we give support for the squid package
considering that there is a squid3 package too in wheezy. Just as
we do not support some earlier versions of the ruby packages.

I would like to request to mark the squid package as unsupported
in the debian-security-support package.

What do you all think about this?

If you agree with me, do I simply upload a new version of
the debian-security-support package or do I requiest that from someone

Best regards,
