I just tried to access BZ 127117, which I created in the first place, and now I
"You are not authorized to access issue #127117."
It is only a very minor update to openssl, and I wanted to submit the patch to
do it.(AOO bugzilla and I have never been in a good relationship).
While here I shall explain the intent of the two recent requests: it is clear
that we won't release soon updated, and hopefully secure, versions of some very
basic support libraries/utilities. At least doing some minor low-hanging-fruit
updates should save some pain to our users and some embarrassment to the
project. The changes are very conservative and have been tested for a while in
trunk but are superseded by the versions in trunk.
I will let the RM and the security team determine if they are worth it.
