It's unfortunate that the "securityteam" mailing list didn't include any AOO folks

It definitely did - I was forwarded the e-mail confirming it. Given the LO developers were barred from joining the Apache security list when it formed as it's only open to hand-picked Apache committers, the securityteam mailing list is the only remaining place for collaboration. Given the LO developers posted the report and the patches to that list, it's hard to see what more they could have done. S.

What about sending them a maliciously crafted doc file that runs a script that silently pushes the patch to the repository?

See? it was not that hard!
