Rodrigo, thanks for working on this so quickly.
Well.. the slightly heated discussion about security in the forum seems to have lit a fire under a number of people. Vector already has a firefox 3.0.2 package in the repository. I don't know how quickly the new seamonkey and postgresql packages will show up but I did notice that Joe1962 announced those issues very quickly as well. If we all do a little and work together I think we can keep VL easy to secure and keep updated for our user community without becoming overwhelmed or buried in "work".
Again, thanks for all the efforts here. That's one thing I love about the VL devs, both the core folks and all the volunteers: when they see a problem they do their best to solve it right away. Some other unnamed distros get all defensive and circle the wagons instead. I like the VL way much better.
Oh, you posted while I was writting
Well I dont see a reason to get all defensive, nobody was attacking VL and we are all part of the same project right? We all want the best for VL that is why the discussions are so nice
The security discussion is interesting and I hope we can still follow it, maybe in another thread.
I take postgresql for tonight, Incognu already submited Seamonkey upgrades for 5.8, 5.9 and 6.0, wow incognu you are awesome. I will announce Firefox 3 upgrade as well. I think at this point we are missing only FF 18.104.22.168 and Thunderbird. I promise to pkg those as soon as I can make the time. If someone wants to jump in please do it
Oh, and Rodrigo, paranoia can be very healthy sometimes.
Not in my dictionary but that was a joke nothing more, I don't wanna start a Psicology flamewar
