Why no slackware fixes since Oct 22?

The slackware Changelog shows no bug fixes since October 22, about
three weeks ago. Does this mean that things like the misplaced g++
include files will have to wait until the next release? It's just that
there was a steady stream of fixes, and then nothing. Are the bugs
that remain, simply going to be in the "known bug" category? Or are
there changes that don't get written up in the Changelog?

: BTW, see /pub/linux/slackware/patches.  There's a package there to patch
: the problem with telnetd.

Good to hear that.  But how about some patches for 2.3?  At least fixes
for the following security holes (which, except the one with telnetd,
are known for a long time now) would be nice:

- telnetd environment (same as above)
- syslog() with no bounds checking in libc-4.6.27
- wu-ftpd _PATH_EXECPATH

Too late, got a new hard drive and switched to Debian...
