Hello Solar Designer,

We found the vendor-sec email list useful not just for reporting issues in open-source projects, but also for receiving advance notification about issues that affect the various open-source libraries and applications that Apple ships.  (More details can be found at

If you are not willing to grant us full membership to the new list, we at least hope we can be cc-ed on all userland issues reported to the list.

Best regards,
