Here's the revised CHANGES-current entry:

2014/09/25 -
2014/09/27	Package: bash
SECURITY FIX	Severity: none to high, remote, active
Updated to 3.1 patchlevel 19 with additional patches by Florian Weimer
of Red Hat.  This fixes vulnerabilities with and introduces security
hardening of function imports, which could in many setups be exploited

The new bash packages in Owl-current are, along with their SHA-256
digests (although I recommend that you check GnuPG signatures on the
*.mtree files, and check the RPMs against those):

I've included owl-etc here because you'll need to upgrade it as well if
you're updating a really old version of Owl, since we've moved
/etc/profile and /etc/bashrc from owl-etc to bash in 2010.  Yes, these
packages happen to install and work even on pretty old versions of Owl.
