We talked about it, and I believe we left it for now saying the PPMC will act as a POC for
security issues. We were working on setting up a security@ alias but then questions arose
as to what's happening with emails (David?) I see value in a security team,
but don't want to create too much overhead. Let me pull that out to a separate thread...

For the scope of this thread - I think we're fine for now having cloudstack-private serve
for PPMC + security discussions...
