Rather than yet another list however, I wonder if security-announce couldn't
be used where some installations might take precautions, if a work round
exists, before rpm updates are finished. IIRC some info has already been
issued in past in this way.

The difficulty is however that folk will expect Roman and team to be on ball
24/7 and also someone is bound to ask questions on this list, before any time
has elapsed to allow a response to be cleared.
