In future, it would be good if you could post debdiffs to -release and
wait for confirmation /before/ uploading. :-)

There are also a few other changes which weren't mentioned in the
changelog or your mail, at least the first of which looks unintentional.
The others are relatively minor, but I wasn't sure if they were intended
to form part of the update, as they weren't mentioned.

- The documentation fix for spamhaus and SURBL not being free for all
has been reverted, as has the corresponding changelog entry from 3.2.5-2
(and the changelog trailer for that version changed).

- The perl-modules dependency has grown a "| libio-zlib-perl (>= 1.04)"

- GPG.KEY is no longer not compressed

- sa-update is no longer run with an explicit umask by the cron job

Personally, the patch is a little larger than I'd currently be happy
accepting for a stable update (at least for a non-security / RC fix). I
realise the changes are all in unstable, although only for a couple of

I'd definitely suggest a lenny-backports upload including the changes
