Severity grave bug opened against package zoph, security tag added,
requesting either some packaging action or removal from the archive.
Popcon says that the outdated Debian package doesn't have many users:
If the current maintainer (or a new maintainer) doesn't show up very soon
with an upload of the new upstream version, it is probably best to remove it
from Debian, as apparently the users have already given up on the
Debian-packaged zoph and are probably using upstream packages directly.
Jeroen, I am sure our security team would appreciate if you could post the
relevant security fixes in your new upstream version to this bug report, as
we will have to do something about the Zoph package in Debian stable,
regardless of the fate of this package for the next stable release.
