For what it is worth... LWN does not monitor our security advisories. I 
once emailed them asking how we could be included in their weekly 
overview, but received no reply. I guess for now they consider us not 
significant enough to warrant a place in their updates advisories.

Or perhaps without a seperate bug fix and security fix channel, it is too 
much of a hassle for them. Who knows.
