Re: web2py

CCed to Debian security team, as I notice that the version of web2py in
jessie is the same version as in wheezy, so presumably they will have
the same issues.

Wondering what to do from here. I guess the options are:

1. Wait longer for upstream response.
2. Try backporting jessie version to wheezy and adding security fixes.
3. Try backporting stretch version to wheezy.
4. Try backporting sid version to wheezy.
5. Make web2py as unsupported in wheezy.

Any others?

Scratch option 2, the versions are the same in Jessie and Wheezy - both
have 1.99.7-1.

Scratch option 3, the package isn't in stretch. Probably due to an
outstanding RC bug

For option 4, wheezy/jessie has version 1.99.7-1 and sid has 2.12.3-1
(latest upstream version is 2.14.6) - I imagine upgrading this might
have compatability issues. Not to mention that RC bug concerning

Considering this won't be in the next release of Debian, I am inclined
to pick option 5.

Any comments?
