Re: handling of Linux kernel vulnerabilities

I think this is a fairly meaningful discussion, not that I feel all that qualified to speak to some of its particulars.

Everyone being well intentioned here, the question is how to put forward the least amount of effort (work) and get the most results (overall security). When that issue gets hazy, it's often useful to fall back upon some fundamental tenets that we as computer guys usually believe in. "Openness" springs to mind at the moment, although other similarly respected concepts might be equally applicable.

Not taking sides or anything; just suggesting that, all other things being equal, the most philosophically appealing course might turn out to be the best one. Seems to work for physics. :-)
