	Oh - it's quite simple, you ASF/OOo made your decision to not include
TDF guys, and we (without an endless mail thread) made the quiet
decision to drop Malte from our LibreOffice specific mailing list:
tdf-security@lists.documentfoundation.org in response; turning it into a
TDF-ony list. That seems reasonable presumably.

	Gosh :-) The securityteam@openoffice.org list stayed exactly as it has
always done - as a cross-vendor, cross-project, place to exchange such
information. No-one was removed from it, Malte is still on it, and Rob
was added. This is where the details were discussed, and the patches
posted. That list is certainly not a TDF property. The tdf-security list
on the other hand is.

	Thank you for your vote of confidence. The more I hear nonsense talked
about what goes on on private security lists, the more I hate them. If
only they were not necessary.

	All the best,

		Michael.
