Subject Discussion on Addressing Security portion of Maturity Evaluation
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:25:10 GMT
Roman,

I wanted to separate out this thread to further discuss the feedback you
gave. Could you please expand a bit on what wiki recommendations we should
have in place. We are more extensively documenting our release policy so we
can transparently execute a patch at the drop of a hat.

This is less about security@fineract vs.  http://www.apache.org/security/
and more about the community being ready for when the first 0 day
hits either of those. Being ready is a combination of tribal knowledge,
wiki recommendations and a release policy that would allow you to patch
at a drop of a hat.
