Subject: Re: unresponsive distros

To be a bit more transparent.  The ideal thing for us would be to use a non-personally owned key for decryption so we could automate ingestion.  Encryption is fine but I will not tie my personal key into Amazon infrastructure.

Normally what we do with disclosure lists is have automation that pages people on every message.  As an example, I get paged for every email sent to the Xen disclosure list.

Hi Solar,

The encrypted thread is a single thread with a high volume of messages.  The later part of the thread loses the context of you explicitly asking for a response.

Coupled with the holiday weekend, that meant when I read through the thread I read too quickly and missed your explicit request.

Had you changed the subject of the thread for the request, it would have been noticed immediately but I don't mean to point too many fingers here.

Wow, that was quick.  I don't see how you could have been following the
thread, including in the period since May 27, and miss the request,
since most other distros replied to that very same thread.  With the
replies quoting parts of my request, it was many messages.  I mentioned
the 3 non-responsive distros by name in two messages - yesterday and
today (a few hours before bringing this to oss-security).

What was it about the oss-security posting that made you notice it,
unlike the many messages on the distros list?

Is it the encryption that causes you not to read some messages, or to
postpone doing so (for days)?

With such selective reading, you'd also miss some new issues that are
being brought up as part of this same thread.  The Subject stays since
it's unencrypted, but discussion deviates and expands to new topics.
