> Better for whom exactly?
For people trying to keep their systems secure?
Security issues are not noise, especially when people producing patches for them are already
aware of their nature.
> So they remove unimportant (for them) parts.
Yeah, that's kinda the problem. Even the most trivial of security issues may be important to
someone. Removing information about it puts users that may be affected at a disadvantage.

details) in general - you are free to fork the project and put any kind of descriptions you
So, mentioning in the release notes of .7 that some security issues have been addressed, which
would take less than 100 words, requires a kernel fork? I don't understand where all this
hostility is coming from.
If issues are known, release notes should specify that. It's that simple.
