... except CVE-2016-6186 had already been fixed by DLA 555-1 for Django
version 1.4.5-1+deb7u17 - so it seemed pointless referring to a CVE that
had already been fixed.

I was considering sending the text here and asking for help. This would
have delayed the DLA by up to 24 hours however, my experience has been
that people get upset fast if the DLA isn't sent immediately.
I think in future I will just delay the DLA anyway.
