Bug#584015: ijsgutenprint: Security bugs in ghostscript

Dear Roger,

Thanks for the explanation, and the offer to help. I am not a developer.

Sorry I do not think I will have time to follow this up, now, to that
detail: am going on holidays, for four weeks starting this weekend, and
will not have computer access during that time.

If the issue is still outstanding in July then I will work on it again,
and may ask for your help then.

Cheers, Paul
