Some security issues don't warrant the significant overhead of creating a
DSA (both for the Security Team and the admin installing the security
updates), but they can still be included for the regular point updates,
- The admin needs to install the point update anyway
- The update receives more testing in advance
- The maintainer provides the update and not the Security Team
