I'd rather like to re-visit this. In the short term, would you be happy 
to disclose the forthcoming advisory and patches for 3rd September to 
our security team, with their GPG key, for them to disseminate as 
appropriate? At a minimum could you send on the proposed advisory text 
so we can do an assessment?

In the long run getting early access to patches would be really helpful 
for preparing packages we can release when embargoes are lifted.
