#237071 is _not_ required for security suports. Furthermore, there is
some difference between "keeping track" and "fixing everything".

It seems to me that you might just have a wrong opinion how jobs in
debian are done. Nobody says: "Hereby, I order you, $SOMEBODY, to do
$JOB.". Instead, people like Jeroen stand up, track problems by
themselfs. Also, one package being seven days too old (and this means
a specific problem on one specific platform) is not so bad as you just
tell us all.
