Subject: [gentoo-security] Seeking assistance with Gentoo's security efforts

1 Folks --
3 As you may have noticed, our security efforts have been stepped up over the
4 past few months, thanks to the outstanding efforts of some new additions to
5 the team.
7 That said, we're all working pretty hard on the security team, probably
8 harder than we should be, so I'm hoping we can recruit an additional two to
9 three folks to help out with our GLSA coordination efforts.
11 These people will be responsible for tracking security bugs from the day
12 they get filed on bugzilla to the day the GLSA gets issued, as well as all
13 the steps in between. This essentially means that you interact with the
14 development team to get packages patched and then draft a GLSA to go out to
15 our user base. It does not require a great deal of technical acumen, but
16 it does require a solid understanding of written english.
18 If you're interested, please join us in #gentoo-security on
19 In a blatant attempt to guilt you into helping us, the
20 only way we will continue to be successful in our security efforts is
21 through the continued support of our community.
23 Thanks.
