We are packaging the dynamically linked skype binary and if you read
that blog post skype even states that you don't need to update that
because .35 is the latest dynamically linked skype package.

The problem that has been fix in the static build is in libpng which we
package separately and that has already been updated, therefore our
skype package is fine.

Since this is the second time, I ask everyone not to flag skype out of
date again unless they really release a new dynamically linked package.

Thank you.
