Yeah, maybe apt-listbugs is a bit confused here:

# apt-listbugs list wpasupplicant
Retrieving bug reports... Done
Parsing Found/Fixed information... Done
grave bugs of wpasupplicant (-> ) <Outstanding>
 b1 - #849122 - With 2.6-2 i dont have the wifi adapter in the (network-manager) list available.
serious bugs of wpasupplicant (-> ) <Outstanding>
 b2 - #849077 - wpasupplicant: [Regression] Updating wpasupplicant makes not possible to connect to encrypted WiFi
 b3 - #849875 - broadcom-sta-dkms: Wifi association took too long, failing activation

Looks like the epoch ("2:") is causing confusion here. Not sure if
apt-listbugs should strip it, or if the version information for the
bugs in the BTS should add it. -- Or not, after looking at [0], this
looks all correct anyway ... Maybe it's that found:2.6-2 is lower
than 2:2.4-1 but in a different branch (would a "notfound <bug>
2:2.4-1" help here?)
Cc'ingg the wpa maintainers. 

But anyway, the bugs affect version (2:)2.6-* in experimental only.


Cheers,
gregor
