Re: Lenny version info
Well, you have my apologies, for whatever that's worth. I hate seeing
exchanges like this. In the time it takes to tell somebody to "Google

adding correct answers to the mix will only improve Google's signal to
noise ratio in the long run.
If anybody'd like to flame me for this email, that's fine. All I ask is
that you do so to my personal email address and not to the list.

exactly related to security (although if you must know, it stemmed
from another discussion on debian-security that did relate to security
and one of my concerns was the version number of my system). So what?
The responses I've received from you make me feel like I've committed
a crime against humanity!
