Please stop this.

You're on the wrong track if you want to have a more secure testing by
blocking new versions from entering. For me CUT is about the opposite,
bringing the new upstream versions as soon as possible while meeting
the usual quality requirements of testing.

We don't want to forbid the migration of package because you believe
that nobody will ensure their security. The maintainers will fix security
issues with new upstream releases, as usualy.

If there's one thing that I have learned in Debian, it's that we should
not accept to let some people to become bottlenecks in the workflow and
you're just suggesting that we should block further progress because you
don't have the time to do the security support. That's just a no-no.
