Yes, this was already raised on the PPMC (on March 22) as you know.  It seems to me that the
PPMC is not concerned.

It is interesting that it is thought, here, that the remedy is to add more ooo-security subscribers
from the PPMC.  That had not come up before.

it is in the assumption that the [P]PMC has somehow delegated the ability to make a release

public SVN until that happens.  I mean developing and deploying all the rest of what accompanies
an advisory along with provision of a mitigation.

Whether this is the case or not should be discussed on the ooo-dev
lists rather than the IPMC general list. This is not an IPMC issue.
All IPMC members are free to join that list or read its archives if
they so desire.
