I've prepared new mapserver packages for squeeze and wheezy with only
the fix for this CVE, the new stable upstream release route I initially
took is not proper to fix this issue.

mapserver (6.0.1-3.2+deb7u2) for wheezy:


mapserver (5.6.5-2+squeeze3) for squeeze:


The squeeze package contained debhelper.log files in the debian/
directory, which caused problems for clean pbuilder builds so they were
removed. And dpatch insisted in changing the permissions. I've included
these changes in the squeeze package too.

No, the WFS-2 specific commit shouldn't be relevant for Debian yet.

The vulnerability was discovered during the implementation of WFS 2.0
support in MapServer. That support only lives in the master branch for
now and will be included in the next major upstream release.

If the security-team approves the package changes, shall I ask my
sponsor to upload the packages?
