campaigning for vendors to submit content to us for this reason.

Personally I'd prefer the vendor notifications to be put on a parallel
list, because
        1. A flurry of 100s of one-man-and-their-dog Linux distributions
           announcing a security update obscures the real discussion
           (especially as each announcement is in its own thread).
        2. I already get (multiple) copies of this stuff.  Save the
           electrons, give me a chance to not duplicate to that extent.

[Damn, we're back to list meta discussions - this is the most
introspective list I have ever been on :-) ]
