Comment Re: Why not allow the update into the repos? (Score 1) 126

Excellent point! I never knew they provided these repos...

Either way, the version jump is too large to demand an automatic update, so the next natural step would be a security update, which is supposed to be supported by 12.04[1] and 14.04.

These usually enter the stream as patches, so it is likely that nobody has submitted a patch to fix these holes.
