My primary concern is helping Moritz and the security team.

Would stable and oldstable be extra uploads?  Can you do those?

Stable and unstable uploads will be separate. Yes I can do those.
At least I can do it for oldstable. I'm not 100% sure for stable as I'm not perfectly
up to date to the procedure there.

Yeah, I think I used it in the past.

That's not the same page Moritz sent me to. But I can take a peek.

But first things first:  Let's get us jessie-security right.  Anything but
the version label I need to change?

I could not find anything else.

With my LTS hat on I think oldstable is equally important. :-)

I will also need to update a Docker container as my pbuilder already bailed
when trying the jessie package.

Moritz or anybody else from security:  what else is left to do?
