Re: Bug#505563: Mozilla Thunderbird Multiple Vulnerabilities
While I can understand your position. This still leaves an RC bug open against lenny.
What do you propose we do for lenny?
1. Leave bug open for lenny. Tag lenny-ignore?
2. Request freeze exception for the new upstream release?

We (the mozilla team) don't have the resources nor the time to cherry
pick security fixes for mozilla packages. Other people are welcome to
join if they wish to do that, but so far, nobody volunteered.
