Nessus is labeling the severity as medium

We do not have a firm release date for 1.1.1u at this point.  As per our 
policy, LOW severity CVE are not release triggering and this one is 
considered LOW severity by the project.  Baring other eventualities, 
three months is a likely time frame.

I'll note that the issue here was in the documentation and that the fix 
is purely a documentation change.  This change is already available 
online on our web site:
