You have my support too.  hardened-sources depends on gentoo-sources and
you've done a good job in supporting hardened :)

Regarding a kernel lead, I'm not sure either, but we need to keep lines
of communication open because often times an issue comes in as a
"hardened kernel" issue when its really a vanilla issue and affects all
of us.  I'm sure the same happens for every flavor of kernel in gentoo.
 My general approach has been if its a hardened specific issue we deal
exclusively at our end, but if its vanilla, then the bug should be
reassigned to the larger group because we all have a stake in it.
That's not to say that we can't all tackle general kernel issues.
