    Felix Wiemann discovered that trac, an enhanced Wiki and issue
    tracking system for software development projects, can be used to
    disclose arbitrary local files.  To fix this problem, python-docutils
    needs to be updated as well.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.1-3sarge5 of trac and version 0.3.7-2sarge1 of
    python-docutils.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your trac and python-docutils packages.
