Mike ... please upload new version ... release manager did not veto to
upload new upstream and we did the same for sarge (upload as long as
release was not out).

For statistics ... there are a total of 120 bugs fixed in
... from which are about 80 bugs clearly security or crasher bugs
... the other fourty are either related to those or look rather

Given that and considering that we already have in
debian (icedove/iceweasel) we should not hold back uploads of new
upstreams for both iceape and xulrunner.

Just test your new packages thorougly and then we are fine.
