Aparently they do occur more often than we would like. And I've been
in at least 4 Cc: chains in the last 2 months. Whoever is in the
the apache security list or PMC should forward tomcat security

It is not only for security - but any issue that we might consider
'private' ( again, it is better than using the Cc: ).
