Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora had fixes out on September 17 for both bugs

Unless you're counting the testing repository, Fedora's fix for CVE-2010-3081 was not available until September 21. Since most users don't use the testing repository, I think September 21 is the appropriate day to say that Fedora "had fixes out".

I don't track Ubuntu and Debian, so I'm not sure how they compare regarding general availability of their fixes.
