lnw.net: No Debian security announcements


Quoting LinuxWeeklyJournal:
Debian's security procedures seem to have broken down slightly as well. The Debian Weekly
News reported four security-related updates this week, none of which were posted to the
debian-security-announce list or to the Debian security page. 

They're right. But I can remember making a security patch to mysql which
even got into slink and I mailed to debian-security-l. 

So my question is, 
a) why no announcements
b) does the security team grep the changes for "security" or similar?
c) should they make a "remembering" mail to all developers that the 
   *maintainers* have to should up and mail to security-l if they fix
   an important problem?
