Sorry it took so long. The declaration file number is 1101027. Scans of
the various documents are available at
http://people.debian.org/~corsac/anssi/ (in French).
It might be a good idea to put those somewhere on the website (not sure
if we have a place for that though) in case other people will need it.
Obviously, the timing is not perfect, as I'll have to make another
declaration for Squeeze when it's out, but I though it was a good idea
to have it first for Lenny, since the requester needed it right now and
people will still use Lenny for some time.
If you have any question, please ask.
