Probably.  When there was the initial problem I put out the call for
help and Michael responded to the call and jumped in and fixed that
part of the system.  He should know the details best.  He may have
upgraded it to 2.6 at that time.  I don't know.

Debian Wheezy 7 is scheduled for release next weekend May 4th.  After
we sort out the issues we learned from this Squeeze "point release
security upgrade" I will want to upgrade the machine to Wheezy 7.
Wheezy 7 has bzr 2.6.0~bzr6526-1 in it at this time.  Being the new
Stable release it will definitely have a lot of users of it.  I am
sure that if problems were found and fixed before that they would
after that point.  Upgrading to it will be good because it will wash
out some of the customizations and it will then be on the security
team supported track which would be good.  It would simplify things
somewhat and simple is always good.

Monday morning there was a small bit of discussion on IRC about simply
going directly to Wheezy 7 in order to get the newer bits.  But it was
only brief discussion because almost certainly that would break other
stuff since with that many things on the system will move to new API
versions.  It has just been mentioned in passing and we let it pass. :-) 
But pretty soon that will be the thing to do.
