Comment 4 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2009-04-02 15:36:45 UTC
versions bumped.  since there are no 6.0.2 versions for ppc and x86-fbsd, I guess I won't ask for them to be keyworded, hoping frisk will eventually update those as well.

This has been fixed with GLSA 200904-14. Since impact and versions are the same, no errata will be sent. glsa-200904-14.xml has been updated. Thanks.
