Our security process can be thought as complying with "responsible
disclosure", as described for example in the RFPolicy [1]. Close
cooperation between security researchers and vendors (ie. us, the
Drupal community) in private before the security vulnerability has
been disclosed has largely proven to be the good way to deal with this
kind of issues.

Our community is open. Discussing issues "inside" the community means
nothing more than discussing those publicly.
