Sure I did, thats why I told the user to upgrade. I had never a suid mount
on my system. (oh.. I know, not important, but I have to watch my reputation
here :)

We tried to get an annoucement about security bugs together for
debian-announce (for the lpr bug, for example), but the problem with this
is, that the persons who have time to write an alert usually dont know what
neeeds to be put into the alert, and the ppl who know about the whole dont
have the time to write something. Anyway.. you will see all security FAQ
updates concerning debian crossmailed to debian-announce. Mailing the Log
with security upgrades to the stable tree will be a good idea, too. We
should to that for rex.

Yes, we talked about this already.
