[Python-apps-team] mercurial stable update for CVE-2008-4297

the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id was
published for mercurial some time ago.
| Mercurial before 1.0.2 does not enforce the allowpull permission
| setting for a pull operation from hgweb, which allows remote attackers
| to read arbitrary files from a repository via an "hg pull" request.
Unfortunately the vulnerability described above is not important enough
to get it fixed via regular security update in Debian stable. It does
not warrant a DSA.
This is Debian bug #500781.
However it would be nice if this could get fixed via a regular point update.
Please contact the release team for this.
This is an automatically generated mail, in case you are already working on an
upgrade this is of course pointless.
