Sorry, I think this mail shouldn't have gotten through debian-www
as it must be confusing.  Jay and I are discussing partially in private
and partially publically.

Apart from that I object.  Our webmaster(s) will update the webpages.
But (s)he will not follow the security lists, too.  That would take up
too much time.  That's the job of our security managers.  These are
officially Chris Hudon and Klee Dienes.  As Klee is too busy and Chris
is unavailable atm I'm acting as security managers.

The security managers take care of security bulletings &c, request
versions, get things fixed etc.  They're also providing information
for the webmaster(s) so they can put that info into the web pages.
