Hi, one caveat.

The Drupal security team only release security announcements and releases
for certain types of releases.  See
Which Releases Get Security Advisory? in
So if you are in your development branch and you find a security issue you
just introduced, just go ahead and fix it yourself with a security tag.  If
you discover a vulnerability that's in a release type that is covered report
it to the security team.

If anyone else on the security team wants to clarify further go ahead.
