Re: [Reportbug-maint] Bug#878088: reportbug: please inform security and lts teams about security update regressions

Hello everyone,
let me first apologize for the long time with no input from the
reportbug maints.

i had a look a the patch and.. i'm not really happy :( it looks like
the version format is the same for both security updates and stable
updates: this means for every bug report (on a stable release against
an updated package) the user will get a prompt if this is a regression
due to a security update, and they may have no clue because all they
did is dist-upgrading.

i'm not super-excited about making a synchronous call to
distributions.json but let's say i can live with that (did you try
your patch with the -O/--offline mode?) is there a way s-t.d.o can get
queried at the same time to know if the current package/version comes
from the secteam/lts or is coming from the pkg maintainer as a normal
stable update?
