Hi list,

I am administering ~25 machines running SuSE and most of them are
connected to the internet in one way or the other. Peter's suggestions
makes alot of sense to me - wading through several security mailinglists
every morning slowly becomes a full time job (and I can't spend that
much time just on security issues).
Anyway, I like the idea of a suse-security-announce-pending mailinglist.
I am aware of the fact that this means extra work to someone at SuSE
but at least you guys have a bigger team than me ;-) I am convinced
that such a list will make life for many customers easier.

Yes, I like the idea and I hope others will comment on it too ;-)
