    The Ubuntu Security team will highlight some community-supported packages that might be good candidates for updating and or triaging. If you would like to help Ubuntu and not sure where to start, this is a great way to do so. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/UpdateProcedures for details and if you have any questions, feel free to ask in #ubuntu-security. To find out other ways of helping out, please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/GettingInvolved. The highlighted packages for this week are:

  • Miscellaneous and Questions
    • There are a lot of merge opportunities for packages listed in http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/d2u/. Performing these updates is a great way to help Ubuntu and bolster your developer application.

    • [!ScottK] The Calligra/KOffice issue is in an embedded copy of wv2. We also have a packaged wv2 that's significantly older. Asked if we could look at wv to see if it was also affected. mdeslaur said it seemed to be. !ScottK mentioned it FTBFS on quantal with the patch. micahg said it looked like a gcc-4.7 issue and ScottK! said he'd find someone to help him with it.
