Forcing users to manually install and update it or to use a package from
outside Debian are also options that aren't good for users.
deb http://www.coker.com.au squeeze wordpress
I run my own repository of Wordpress packages at the above APT source. That
includes some Wordpress plugins that are licensed suitably for Debian but
which have the same update issue.
One thing about Wordpress and it's plugins and themes is that you have to
assume that every new release fixes some security issues. They just don't
document things well enough to allow you to assume otherwise.
