Also I think it's important to keep in mind a LOT of the Open Source vendors are staffed by volunteers or people who do this as part of their day job but not exclusively so. Increasing the burden for security response on companies with employees is one thing, but on volunteers is probably going to lead to a serious set of problems and some long term consequences that are probably MUCH worse for users than a few potentially security issues that potentially leak early. -- Kurt Seifried Red Hat Security Response Team (SRT)
