	Sorry Christian, you are completely right. A few
days ago I saw a discussion about long threads without
change the subject, sorry, my mistake.

	We should start a new discussion trying to figure
out how we can improve security updates to stable. And also
to new releases.

	Yes, this thread is about "php" and security patches
from upstreams. Somebody knows the position of PHP Security
Team about this? What I mean is, the php maintainer in
Debian, already talk with PHP Security Team about what we
are facing?

	Don't exactly, the community could do some backports
and upgrade tests on php package, but it is not official and
people could doubt about how safe is use it.

	I don't know if we can upgrade php to a non-harmfull
new version, perhaps we should write an open statement to
the community, but I would like to wait until hear some
PHP Security Team notices. :o)
