This is exactly what I want to know. Does Chris have the time to do this?
He seemed pretty busy.

This also isn't clear. I thought the main thrust of the security team was
for package integrity. If this is under their mandate, then fine.

My whole point in asking such simple, direct questions is to make sure
we don't go around in circles. It is not clear to me that we are all
looking at this the same way. The security pages haven't been updated
in over a month and I want this cleared up soon. I'd like to hear Chris'
take on all this.

Magossa'nyi A'rpa'd <mag@bunuel.tii.matav.hu> may be willing to fill in
for Chris while he is gone. FYI, the responsiblity of this job is to
keep up on bugtraq and any other bugs that come to debian-private,
and determine if Debian could be affected. This usually involves contacting
the maintainer of the affected package. The results can be fed to
me for updating the web pages. When there is a solution to the problem,
this also gets sent to me for inclusion to the pages.

When there is a stable maintainer, it looks like we will implement a
debian-security-announce (or debian-bugtraq-announce) mailing list as well.
