Bug#687916: unblock: zabbix/1:2.0.2+dfsg-4



Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Dear release team,

I seek your advise regarding the possibility for unblocking package 'zabbix'.

This is a major upgrade, not compliant with freeze policy and there were great 
many changes [1] (and bugfixes) yet I believe we might have a strategic 
benefits from allowing new version to Wheezy mostly from security prospective.

Security team expressed their concerns in #679801

  http://bugs.debian.org/679801

At the moment current version in "testing" (zabbix/1:1.8.11-1+b1) is affected 
by #683273 (security) and possibly some other security issues not to mention 
number of bugs fixed in "unstable".

Also unblocking will be a relief for future maintenance.

Please note that "zabbix/1:2.0.2+dfsg-4" was in unstable for 33 days with no 
new bugs reported.

Generally user's feedback for version 2 was quite positive and we already have 
few backporting requests.

Please advise.

Best regards,
Dmitry.
