However, as I've asked privately, it would _not_ be asking too much to
have short blurbs sent to security-announce when a patch is put on the
errata page, especially irt security issues. I've even offered to do
this, since I follow source-changes. Again, will you consider letting
someone do this? Noone wants to cause you more grief than necessary,
but when (for instance) an Apache fix goes in the tree and is posted
to errata.html, but is only given brief treatment on bugtraq and none
on the @openbsd lists, well, it is a bit bothersome.
(and, actually, a mention to announce@ or misc@ when a reliability fix
is considered vital enough to be put in the patch branch, isn't asking
too much imo)
