The longer version would be something like: This is an example of a situation where no one filed for a CVE because of perceived hurdles in the process, even if the facts didn't justify the perception. Now of course Moritz tells us there is in fact a CVE and indeed I can locate the issue in Debian's security tracker. I guess it has been judged not serious enough to need fixing in buster. I disagree but clearly that is up to the maintainers. -- Ian
