I've opened a rollup bug to feed into the final release. Please add this
as a "blocks" to any security related bugs you might open.


I've also subscribed to oss-security and started the process for us to
be able to gain admittance to the private list, first by creating an
entry on their wiki:


As well as the related freedesktop page:


Next steps to gain admittance is to do a release, create a security@
address, and publish a web page showing we issue/track updates.
We can then petition for admittance to the private list.

As my time is somewhat limited, I'm more than happy to accept any/all
help as far as identifying/fixing/tracking issues with our packages.
