	Sure - this is what the agenda item is about; AFAIR there is only one
interesting one, that is a Lotus Word Pro related issue.

	It doesn't affect 3.4.x - we fixed it there early, and released 3.4.x
silently with the fix, and CERT should have announced post 3.3.x - but
sure ...

	We need people who in addition to coping with the tedium of reacting to
the security issues, providing fixes and testing them on older branches
- also like to write them up.

	Sure - so - there is certainly a space to do this sort of thing in the
security team if you want to get stuck in ? and of course, we can't use
usual means for this - the bugs / patches are not tracked in bugzilla
etc. so it needs some manual effort.

	Do you know anyone that would want to help out with that admin ?
