Description

[Originally requested by Jerry Jelinek <> in developer@:]
-- snip --
Back when Sun was doing OpenSolaris they were
plugged into the various agencies, such as CERT,
which issue advance notification when a security
hole has been found. Sun could then quickly address
the bug and issue a patch.

Has anyone given any thought to how this might work
now? Is it up to each distro to deal with these problems
or is there some way we could all leverage common
work through Illumos? Does anyone know how to get
Illumos plugged into the various places which track these
security holes before they are widely published?
