yes, Alan used to be the security contact person, but according to MAINTAINERS, vendor-sec took over that role (for the worse, as the facts show). with that said, we did consider contacting him after having waited for weeks in vain, but unfortunately the sudden leak of the uselib() bug and exploit made it necessary to release a new grsecurity version (which was otherwise being finalized for release anyway).
