If you see a GLSA somewhere else than from Gentoo first, then you are doing something wrong :)<br><br>Whatever I say here, this probobly being interpreted like crying, so I will keep it to a minimum: But I doubt that this study is anywhere close to representative. (For example, we never issued a GLSA for libmms, because we never had to according to our policy since it was unstable. So, did we get 0 points for this?). And please note that security cant do a shit about missing maintainers and so on. In fact, security is only a relatively small member of the whole security related chain, altough this may be surprising at first.
<br><br>All I can say is, that I hope that they will continue the &quot;study&quot;, because we will kick ass next time. We are already #2 of the community only distris (= no commercial background).<br><br>Kind regards,<br>
<br>Stefan<br><br>
