Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2011 11:46:30 +0100 From: Michael Harrison <n0idx80@...il.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Re: non-Linux advance notification list Sorry about the confusion. I work for the Gentoo security team, and I am not sure whether it would be beneficial for me to be on the closed list or not. It is my presumption that the release of non-Linux vulnerabilities might better help us identify vulnerabilities across the board. If you do not believe this is the case, please disregard my request to be on the closed. I apologize for any extra work my request caused you. I caught the middle of the thread, and may have missed something along the way.
