Security fixes in Extras



Because I maintain a package (denyhosts) which contains a daemon that
runs continuously as root, the issue of how to handle security fixes
for packages in extras interests me greatly.

Some questions:

Is there any defined procedure for handling security fixes?

What if the maintainer is out of pocket?

If I need to push a security fix, is there a way to jump ahead in the
build queue and expedite the sign and push process?

Is there somewhere I could send an update announcement?
