Which does "A" in "DSA" mean, "Alert" or "Advisory"?


Japanese translation team found that the term "advisory" has
been translated into two Japanese words from pages to pages.
Thus, we would like to decide a unified Japanese word.

However, we also found during the unification work that English
pages have ambiguity around usage of terms of "alert" and

For example, http://www.debian.org/security/index.en.html shows
a list of "alerts".  On the other hand, page for each item (ex. 
http://www.debian.org/security/2004/dsa-502.en.html) has a title
of "Debian Security Advisory" which implies "A" in "DSA" means

IMO, Japanese translation team is able to assign different
Japanese word for each of "advisory" and "alert", if each of
English page intentionally chooses "advisory" or "alert".
However, I doubt.
