Subject: Chromium 6 in squeeze
Date: Wednesday 1st September 2010 08:24:43 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Hi Release Team, In the next few days upstream will release chromium 6 in the stable channel. This means that v5 will not receive any further (security) update, and v6 will receive security and stability updates. I could start to backport patches, but unfortunately there are some important webkit security issues (SVG related) that are hard to backport due to at least one or two major refactoring of the SVG code. This means that any future SVG security issue (and unfortunately they are frequent) will be hard to fix. Therefore I kindly ask you permission to upload chromium 6 in unstable.  http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/57886 http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/58212 Cheers, Giuseppe.
