As others mentionned: Oracle. More precisely, because Oracle has a
rather rude security policy of not divulging security issues directly
and publishing a whole new release (as opposed to a patch) when security
issues are published.

That regression alone should be indication enough that Oracle doesn't
care about us, if we needed any reminder.

We did it for Libreoffice, let's push it a little further.
