Why no SuSE RPMs for KDE 3.1.4 security update?

Since KDE 3.1.4 is a security update prompted originally by a posting to
suse-security, I thought it worthwhile to cross-post this question to

Why have KDE 3.1.4 SuSE RPMs not yet appeared? Why is there no security
advisory? Are the security vulnerabilities fixed in some other way in SuSE
Best regards

Hi all,
I agree with Charles. 3.1.4 is a security update as well as a bug fix.


I don't understand why nobody on the suse-security mailing list has taken up
the issue of the lack of KDE 3.1.4 RPMs, especially since the problem was
originally noticed by a subscriber to suse-security:

Other distros have sent security advisories and created binaries for download:

So, why not SuSE?
Best regards
