[squeeze] - wordpress <not-affected> (twentyfifteen theme not present)
The default theme twentyfifteen is not present in wheezy. Upstream has
commited though which
will enericons example.html files if present. As the file was included
in other popular themes and plugins maybe it should as well be included
in an update for wordpress for wheezy?
