As far as I understand the policy listed on
http://release.debian.org/stable/3.1/3.1r3/, this would require a
DSA. Does the security team plan on doing a DSA on this if I prepare a
package, or does the stable release team grant me an exception to the
policy to prepare -8sarge4 with this patch? If not, I'll prepare a
-8sarge4 without any change as authorised by Martin Zobel-Helas.

If I get an answer (CCed to lionel@mamane.lu, not only to
pkg-mailman-hackers@lists.alioth.debian.org) within two hours, I'll
prepare a package today (Friday 8 September).
