Somewhat. Occasionally I'll be kept in the loop by Joey, but that's more
the exception than the rule. I can't blame him, though; he's quite busy
(he's going to have to summarize all this crap for DWN soon, for example
:). Instead, I blame vendor-sec for their rather lame non-disclosure
policies (but that's besides the point).
