I'm almost done with the OpenSSH update (which is from 6.1 to 6.7 and not 6.5 
btw). I hope to find enough time to finish this tomorrow but at least it should 
be done before the end of the week.

As for the OpenSSL update, I think Sasha already started something (at least 
he planned to). If no one is working on updating it, I can volunteer to do it 
as well (after the OpenSSH update). It usually is not a big deal when it comes 
to a security fix release update.
