Valid point or not, Boris, the way it was said was totally uncalled for. Alex, yes, it was perhaps not handled perfectly, but if you don't like Drupal, "in this regard" why don't you just create your own content management system that works better "in this regard"? Or go find one that handles it better "in this regard"? Chances are that you will not be successful.

Karoly and the rest of the security team: better luck this time, and thanks for all your hard work over the months. I may just be another voice on this highly active mailing list, but please be sure that there are other people like me who appreciate your efforts a lot.

Karoly: this is still a valid point. The security advisories *must*  
go out first, privately, before the public announcement. Do you need  
help with this next time? I'll volunteer to help manage this.
