Question on recent PHP VuXML info

From: Andrew Storms (astormsncircle.com)

Not sure if this is the correct place for VuXML questions, but the FreeBSD
VuXML list ( http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-vuxml/) looks pretty
dead given the last update was in 2007 according to the archives.

We were previously tracking this entry, which pretty much sat for a while
without an applicable upgradeable resolution available.

Affected package: php5-posix-5.2.6
Type of problem: php -- input validation error in posix_access function.


Then late last week, the same VuXML ID started reporting this information

Affected package: php5-5.2.6
Type of problem: php -- input validation error in safe_mode.


The generic question I'm asking is: What happened and why? Seems to me that
if you have a VuXML ID (which, I thought wasn't suppose to be re-used), then
it's name and description shouldn't just apparently change one day.

So is the prior "php5-posix-5.2.6" and the now "php5-5.2.6" with same ID,
the same bug, a new description, does the newer supercede, etc, etc? Where
can I get the background on what went on here?
