OK. I'd like to wait until the deadline I've set for Julien has been
reached (that's in 11 days now), and then I can handle it either via
DSA or jessie-pu, as the security team prefers.

Julien: if you think you won't have time to fix this within 10 days,
please let us know so we don't wait for you :)
