..thanks Steve, I missed _all_ these announcements. _Way_ to much
traffic for me in d-u, over 60k unread, and I saw nothing in d-announce
nor in d-mirror nor in d-sec-ann, which is where I expected to see this
kinda news, as that was Debian advice when I joined 2 years ago.
..the "too many" list was taken from CC line of Message-ID:
Date: Thu, 9 Sep 2004 11:53:48 +0100, hoping the S/N ratio
would remain acceptable, I've got 11 and 2 more there today
since August 21'st 2003. ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
