security updates for -stable


Hello,
what is the current policy for security updates for the -stable branch? Where do you get "official" precompiled packages from, or has this become DIY?
Regards,
-pu

There's nothing behind that URL for year 2005. I think that some packages for Slack 10.1 should have been updated (Mozilla being the last one, and although it has been dropped from -current, it is still part of -stable)

Right, that means there aren't any "official" security updates for 2005. I don't follow it that close but I'd think Pat would address anything detrimental to security, but then again he's been under the weather lately and his plate is probably overflowing.

Well, we've got them now in the -stable branch. Thanks Pat, also for putting Mozilla back for now.
