    I think the issue is that there is no main "security" contact for the
    kernel. If we want to make vendor-sec that contact, fine, but we better
    warn the vendor-sec people :)

    vendor-sec handles a lot of other stuff that is not kernel related
    (every package that is in a distro.) This would only be for the kernel.
