I've just reviewed the above and subscribed you to the list. I have some "complaints", though: http://www.mvista.com/cve_vulnerabilities.php gives a mapping of CVE IDs to affected MontaVista products. That's great. However, fix information is missing. Does having a CVE ID listed there imply that you have fixed the issue for those affected products or not (e.g., perhaps not for EOL'ed products, or are you not listing those as affected at all)? Specifically relevant to this discussion would be the dates on which you're getting issues fixed (such that those could be compared to CRDs to see if you likely made use of the advance notifications or not). Right now, you have "Published" and "Modified" dates, but no fix dates (which would be per product?) Also, no info on 2011's CVEs yet. Does this mean we'd have to wait until 2012 to get an idea on how you're handling 2011's security issues? That said, you do look like a security-conscious Linux distro vendor now (and you meet some other requirements), so you're on the list. Thanks again, Alexander
