So, dear PPMC and dear whoever currently knows where the mail routing 
info for is, please get together and fix 
that address - for the near future at least - to be something that 
works.  Submitting an INFRA ticket will start the ball rolling on the 
ASF side to host it.

Simply subscribe ooo-security@ to that list, and then using whatever 
existing security sharing handshakes we use to approve other subscribers 
is would be sufficient.  Obviously, the TDF private security@ list 
itself would be welcome to subscribe to securityteam@ as well.

Done.  We can then have conversations either privately separately or 
privately together as needed.

Oh, no, this is great!  I'm just wondering how much I can charge per 
ticket for people to watch the next few rounds of this comedy fest. 
It's high internet humor here with the he said, she said.

(And yes, that last para is full of massive frowning sarcasm.)
