I'm afraid not. You are going to have to review all the security bugs 
between when we stopped supporting 2.14 and now, see if they apply, and 
if so port the patches. :-( Sorry about that.

I'm sure Dave would be happy to add you to the webtools-security group 
in once he's happy you are definitely a Debian 
developer ;-)

It's great that these packages are getting some love :-) Not wanting to 
point the finger, but in the past incompatibilities and problems with 
the Debian version of Bugzilla have led to us refusing to support it. 
We'd love to work with you to look at making changes to Bugzilla to make 
it easier for you to integrate it into Debian, and reduce the number of 
differences between the versions.
