I asked my original question to see if the process could be improved.

For instance, it would be good if there was direct pointers to the 
various distributions page where packaging state and availability for 
various releases would be shown and updates. This is what can be found 
for several other security bug scenarios. Especially for security 
updates, it is more important for coordinating the efforts and help 
showing how this is handed off. While each party have their 
responsibility, they way things coordinate can be important for how 
smooth the upgrade becomes for the users. I wanted to just ask about it 
to see if there is improvements to be done.

For the moment, I don't have 4.2.8p10 available in my version of distro 
(Debian testing). Packaging is important to many, so this is to 
illustrate possible improvements.
