Re: [SECURITY] [DSA 2819-1] End-of-life announcement for iceape

Where can I find more information on this?
Is this for old-stable?  Or for the latest 7.3 Debian?

Was support dropped due to lack of manpower?  And what were the main
differences between upstream Seamonkey and the Debian-branded version?
If Seamonkey is still supported, why not just package that one?
