Re: Wheezy update of irssi?

Hi all,

Any news about this? Will maintainers take care of irssi CVEs in wheezy?

As Antoine said, irssi is one of the packages in our radar. I will wait an answer until the end of the week, otherwise I'll prepare an upload based on patches in jessie and stretch.

Hi Rhonda!

Just to let you know, it's not high priority, but it's still on our
dashboard. :) LTS issues are prioritized by how many people have the
affected packages installed, and irssi is one of the packages that have
"votes". Considering it's a remote DOS, I still believe it's worth

We are happy, of course, to wait for you to make the update if you still
plan on doing so, now that updates trickled down in stretch/jessie. Do
let us know, however, if you want the LTS team to take care of it for
