I accidentally sent it to @debian.org, and Colin Watson pointed that
error out to me.  I re-sent it to @lists.debian.org, which is where
the thread belongs.  Note that I removed the CC to
debian-security@debian.org.  The similarity of those two aliases is
very confusing.  I am also on a number of perl.org's lists, and for
that domain the correct address is @perl.org, not @lists.perl.org.  I
think I confused the two.

If you want to participate in that part of the discussion I suggest
you read the list archives for debian-security@lists.debian.org.

     If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
