freeze exception requested for RC bug (wrong copyright file)


  As Dennis Brakhane report in #493967, I made a mistake when writing
debian/copyright when I started packaging mercurial: I talk about
GPL-v2+ instead of GPL-v2 only.
  My upload 1.0.1-5 has only the debian/copyright changed (switching
to the new proposal format at this occasion) [and debian/changelog of
  Can it get a freeze exception ?

  I also just see that upstream released on August, 13 a minor bug-fix
version of mercurial. The changelist is available here:
  Do you think that I would be allowed to package it for lenny ?
If yes, I will do it immediately. If no, I will wait for the lenny release
before packaging it.
Note that, according to upstream, this release fix two security bugs.
One (CVE-2008-2942) is already fixed in the current package (patch
backported). The other one is not.
