Gee, that sounds like a good idea.  In fact, SUCH a good idea that  
it's been implemented for years.

Seriously though, if there is anybody else on debian-security who 
is NOT also subscribed to debian-security-announce, you should 
probably do so.  There have been a few debian-security posts 
recently asking about the status of something for which a fix was 
announced on debian-security-announce a couple of days 

My understanding is that debian-security IS more or less a debian-
user for security issues.  :)
