well, that's sad to hear, but I guess nobody cares at all, so I won't 
elaborate any further on this.

IMHO, I tried to bring everyone involved on that list, and we IMHO even 
discussed that on the OOo security list and gave people a chance to 
raise their hands. I don't have a subscriber list, but we tried to add 
all active people.

Everyone on the LibO security list is involved directly in security -- 
either in detecting, fixing or writing security bulletins. We have no 
marketing/PR people on their just out of nothing.

No problem. It's not about me, I just find it sad that things that 
worked out so very well in the past, and that could be a basis 
cooperation, are no revoked by your side.
