Thomas, that's enough. Other people have legitimate disagreements with
your preferred approach; rude use of repeated assertion is not going to
automatically win you the argument.

FWIW, I think that every upload to the security archive should be
accompanied by a security advisory. I wouldn't be at all surprised if
the security team felt that uploads that don't merit security advisories
were an inappropriate use of their archive.
