Please read the entire bug report before closing. Reading only the
first paragraph might lead to jumping to wrong conclusions. (Also the
discussion already progressed in the bug trail btw.).

The next paragraph (which you deleted) reads:
 Now the News is up (News/2010/20100130.wml) and since it
 unfortunately as usual does not mention the new version of each software
 (which is done in every DSA) I as usual went to
 for each package XXX to look for the latest version but to my suprise
 I saw the following:


and then the bug report continues about inconsistencies between
various version reports on Debian sites. So it is clearly not about a
missing announcement and reading it ("News/2010/20100130.wml") does
not help (so in fact I even *did* get the announcement, though
"getting" it is another issue one could discuss).
