I completely agree that tracking this kind of information is
important, and I've personally wanted to see disclosure-related
stats for years. I specifically mentioned OSVDB because they are
trying to track this information at a greater level of detail than
any other effort I know of. And, by virtue of being an *open source*
vulnerability database, others can contribute to it.
First of all I am heavy user of OSVDB (http://osvdb.org/user/fgeek/profile). One should note that even OSVDB has a
license, which will limit the usage of the data: http://osvdb.org/license and from my own experience I can say that
this is definitely not always a good thing and might create new aspects for words open and free. For NDA reasons I
can't say the case where this was a problem, but you can use your imagination.
