That's not necessarily correct. While many maintainers don't care about LTS,
some others do and they help provide security updates in coordination with the

Actually the bug tracker is a good place to report regressions in LTS, just like
it's fine for stable. reportbug has a feature to Cc the security team or the LTS
list if it detects that the package comes from such a suite. That probably
didn't work here because it was a follow-up to an already opened bug, but in
general I wouldn't see an issue with reporting a bug against the package.
In any case, thanks Etienne for reporting this regression, and thank you Simon
for letting us know.
