There's currently a call for project committers to be on the list. This list intends to be the clearinghouse for 
all ASF project related security issues, not just httpd.

Costin, Craig, et al.: the deal seems to be that each major project 
version have someone who's a committer subscribed as a project liason. 
So it might make sense if you both signed up, or if other committers 
wanted to step forward...I would leave that to you all to figure out.

Not to short-circuit a Tomcat committers list, because there may well be 
issues other than security to deal with, and it would make sense to have 
information flow between security@ and a proposed tomcat-committers@ 
anyway (I'm thinking the detailed hashing of fixes would happen on the 
latter list).

Just my $0.02.
