This is being discussed in #859123: automate import of DLAs and DSAs in


In particular, I think this message from Lev Lamberov is relevant:

Can you tell us more about the current work flow of our DSA

DSAs are manually imported by a web team member or a security team
member, using the parse_advisory.pl script.

Does someone from the webteam reviews

Usually yes, but also, as it is noted in Lev's message, I think the
format of DSA is more standard.

I'm sure we can improve the current parse-dla.pl

I don't know.

I guess that if the security team does not that already it's probably
because of a reason (or maybe because nobody in the web team could find
the time+skills+motivation needed to make it possible...).

Kind regards
