It's in the security project's policy:
"once an ebuild is committed, evaluate what keywords are needed for the
fix ebuild and get arch-specific teams to test and mark the ebuild
stable on their architectures (arch-teams should be cc'd on the bug, as
well as releng during release preparation) and set status whiteboard to
http://www.gentoo.org/security/en/vulnerability-policy.xml, Chapter 4
As the CC'ing should be done by the security folks/the maintainer when a
new ebuild is ready, I don't think it needs to be in devmanual. The
relevant people should be aware of the process.
