Realize (in this case) that the replies you are reading are extremely valuable, even to relative newcomers. Most replies have been quite informative. Some with very good analogies explaining why we don't broadcast security-related issues before any investigative work has been done to at *minimum* determine their impact to the userbase. Others have expressed their appreciation for what the sec-team does, why they do it that way, and why it makes sense to do it that way. The FreeBSD security folks take their jobs very seriously, and it shows. They are very good stewards acting with common-sense, good judgement while following best common practises, all on behalf of the people they are responsible for....us (and technically, themselves).
