The message referred to above says:
"Joey Schulze from the Security Team offered to do an accumulative
security announce, covering all the amd64 packages which now get added
for all the past advisories, so expect one big DSA in the near future.
(ETA is Monday at the moment).
All new DSAs from now on will simply include amd64."
I'm assuming the cumulative announcement has been delayed for some
reason (although the above does only provide an ETA). Other than that,
the message is dated last Wednesday - there have been no security
updates for *any* architecture between then and now.
I'm afraid at the moment the best advice is to wait for a) the promised
cumulative announcement and/or b) the next standard DSA.
