“at that time”, okay, but there might have been later uploads, and…

this is so:


“For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

# apt-cache policy libtiff-tools
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 4.0.2-6+deb7u5
  Version table:
     4.0.2-6+deb7u5 0
        500 http://archive.debian.org/debian/ wheezy/main amd64 Packages

It would be great if the last state of LTS, ideally with a signature
that does not expire for a couple of years¹, were available from
archive.d.o as well.

① Some day I’m going to implement (and retrofit) Release.gpg signature
  pinning, so that we can circumvent timestamp checks if the actual
  signature file content is identical to the one present on the local
  filesystem, so we can use SecureAPT also with historic releases.
