I think that a mention on the oss-security wiki may not be bad, in an "extra links" section or something. The people on the list could also forward details internally. For instance, I may be on here representing Mandriva but I largely deal with security-related stuff, so it would probably be in both the list's and Mandriva's interest to have one or two of the actual developers on board. >> 5.

No, it sounds like there are a lot of lists now (vendor-sec, oss-security, xvendor), but I don't think any of them are "clones" of each other or in any way compete. -- Vincent Danen @ http://linsec.ca/ Content of type "application/pgp-signature" skipped
