With due to respect, I disagree. From a user's perspective who
occasionally interacts with the security team, I beg to differ. The
security team does a great job, and their work is reliable, trustworthy
and mostly invisible (which is what it should be, nobody wants to deal
with conflicting/problematic upgrades during a security update).

Of course, everything could always be improved - for example I'd like to
have longer stable support cycles - but given the limited and restricted
manpower, the result is great.

I find your remaining judgment of the security team rather insulting
than an opening of a discussion which is by no means constructive.

with kind regards,
