Why the heck is gnash in the security updates repo? Shouldn't it be in the main repo?

It is in main ...
Code: Select all
debian64:~$ apt-cache policy gnash
  Installed: 0.8.1+cvs20080212.1133-1
  Candidate: 0.8.1+cvs20080212.1133-1
  Version table:
 *** 0.8.1+cvs20080212.1133-1 0
        990 unstable/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.7.2-1lenny1 0
        500 lenny/updates/main Packages

I imagine there is some security update that needs to be made. As I understand it, "security" is not actually a repository, only a list of packages with pending security updates.
