Package: security-tracker
Severity: wishlist

Hi

It would be nice to have a new tag handled in similar way to 'no-dsa'
called 'postponed'.

In some cases a issue warrants a DSA, but can be postponed until more
urgent issues appear for that given package. Currently those are mared
in free text form usually like

[jessie] - foo <no-dsa> (Can be included in future DSA)

but that is prone to be forgotten when preparing then the update for
foo. It thus will be nice to be able to distinct cases which are
really just <no-dsa> and those which warrants a DSA, but can be
postponed, and thus be marked e.g.

[jessie] - foo <postponed>

It though need evaluation which parts of the tracker/cronjobs/scripts
would be affected by such a change.

Regards,
Salvatore
