A quote of Linus from the above thread:
(See http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/270044 for the full article.)
The only thing I really care about is that we can serve the people who
depend on us by giving them source code that is as bug-free and secure as
we can make it. If that means that we should make the changelogs be a bit
less verbose because we don't want to steal the thunder from the people
who found the problem, that's fine.
I suspect that you may be revising your views. Linus takes a strong "let's minimise the window of vulnerability" line. That would appear to be in everyone's best interest.
