 At least for the resolved issues the fixed are public available from
the CVS (maybe even together with log messages). 
 Sufficiently skilled people thus can reconstruct the security issues
from the changes; I feel there is no point for hiding them any longer.

 On the other hand admins may be less pressed to upgrade if they look at
the current available list of fixes and find none which hurts them in
their setup ... for example I do not have untrusted users able to write
malicious Python Scripts on my site (I guess ;-), and I do not use DTML
or some Tree-stuff -- thus I did not upgrade yet, and You may feel free
to blow my site with one of the not yet published issues.

my 2 cents, 

 btw: it does not look like either zope.org nor zope.com has been
upgraded yet? The find-support still looks quite public ...
