We have a lenny security update about ready to release (just waiting
on a couple builds). I've merged those changes into the lenny branch and
I can upload an o-p-u build tomorrow (which I'll do, barring any
objection). This should allow for a d-i upload before the weekend. I
don't think a d-i upload is strictly necessary - we haven't added any
hardware support since the last point release - but it is probably
a good idea given the large number of changes since the last update.
