I just asked around on IRC, and one of the Ubuntu guys said they didn't
get any prior notification of this, so fixed packages won't be out
until tomorrow at the earliest (for Ubuntu).

Nor Debian neither Suse were aware either.

Was this not coordinated with the distros at all? If not, that seems
like major fail on the reporters and NCSC-FI's part. :/

There was a mail from Red Hat on monday morning (CEST) with no detail
and a CRD to april 9th. It seems OpenSSL advisory came a bit
uncoordinated, actually, which (it seems) triggered the release of the
heartbeat and cloudfare posts, as well as the Red Hat one here.
