Regarding - I think that all who play the role of 
release manager should be on the list ( i.e. Remy, Larry, Mladen, Henri).
It seems to be open for a limited number of 'liasons' ( I hope it
is more than one, as we have several major components ).

My preference is that any tomcat commiter who is interested to be able
to get this info and discuss ( and hopefully fix ) tomcat security
issues. I hope that whoever gets the security messages will fix them or 
forward them to tomcat-commiters - but that's of course his choice.

If the apache list is open to any commiter - I'll certainly subscribe
( and I hope most active tomcat commiters will do the same ! ),
but that doesn't remove the need for a private list for tomcat
