Well, whose responsibility is it to make blog posts about security
issues? If you can answer this question then the other question
shouldn't be any more difficult to answer ;)
I don't think the people who may be interested in security announcements
want to monitor a generic development blog, since Python is far from the
only piece of software they rely on. /I/ certainly wouldn't want to.
Also, I think Gustavo's whole point is that if we don't have a
well-defined, deterministic procedure for security announcements and
releases, then it's just as though we didn't care about security at all.
Saying "look, we mentioned this one on our development blog" isn't
really reassuring for the target group of people.
