Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Creation of ooo-security List
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2011 23:50:02 GMT
I'm assuming the goal is to keep the analysis and discussion of alleged vulnerabilities to
a relatively small need-to-know group.  

I don't know that 10 is a hard number, I heard it as a suggestion when I asked around about
how this works at Apache.  Do you know typical sizes for security@project lists?

I've never heard of a magic number cap to the # of subscribers of
a mailing list.
