You have got to be kidding, a major new upstream sync two weeks before release?

Rather you should prepare a minimal package based on the fix for this DSA and ask your security team/release team to get it in through the normal channels.

If you have something to say, please say it in a respectful way. I'm sure Kazuhiro Nishiyama had the best intentions when filing this bug report.

Just looking at the version numbers in the different Ubuntu releases, the patch you mentioned should at least apply for precise, oneiric, natty and lucid. For hardy it is less clear.

1.1.22+dfsg-4+squeeze1 does not build in precise as-is. It will likely need -4ubuntu1 to build.

Nack on the FFe from the release team, but we definitely want the security fix before release. Please prepare a merge between the package in Testing and what's in Precise.
