There are a few things to talk about here.  I believe Anne wanted to talk
about the fact that there's a ton of security updates assigned to QA.  QA is
doing a good job with these, but they could always use more help.

There are some other issues too.  There are a few security updates that have
been pushed to QA that they have found some issues with, and I need help
correcting these issues.  I don't want to make executive decisions about
changing things in packages I don't know much about when I'm just trying to
push security updates, and I could use some input from more experienced people.

Bug 6379 - groff (groffer command in groff package needs groff-perl)

Bug 6469 - krb5 (problems with kadmin and/or krlogin)

Bug 6544 - tftp (problems with xinetd service configuration)

Bug 6548 - firefox (gnome-python-gtkmozembed segfaulting)

Finally, there are several other needed security updates for which no update
has been built yet and I have CC'd other packagers, but in many cases haven't
received any input on yet.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
