No - because it's not really a bug. It's just that the repos have older
versions. Most stuff in the repos is months if not years behind the
current versions; for 99% of stuff, that's no problem. For firewalls,
firewall managers and security software in general it's generally best
to get the latest stuff, and that probably isn't in the repos...
