Thanks for your help in matching the changelog issues to CVE names, I've put 
your suggestions into the tracker.

It is not really missing, we track the issue but it's marked as a non-issue 
(we treat safe mode bypasses as non-issues) and thus not shown in that

The php5 package in Debian uses the system copy of PCRE, so this isn't an open 
issue. I've updated the tracker to add this information to that CVE.
