In that other long thread -- and it is understandable if you missed
this -- I said:

"I think it would be good if the PPMC wanted to express to the
ooo-security members that they want us to make security collaboration
with TDF/LO a priority and to make every effort to share all
appropriate information with TDF/LO.  I'd support that.  This could be
solemnized by having a few Apache members, maybe mentors, affirm that
they will make an effort to monitor that ooo-security list and to
escalate to the AOOo PPMC is there is any backsliding on this."

So I'm proposing that a couple Apache members step up to the plate on
this as well.  What do you say?
