Is there a technical version of this Full-Disclosure list?, or
is this just the list for discussing the finer academic intricacies of
balanced arguments?

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 :-) ]
