Subject[PATCH] Documentation/security-bugs: provide more information about linux-distros
Date
Provide more information about how to interact with the linux-distros
mailing list for disclosing security bugs.

First, clarify that the reporter must read and accept the linux-distros
policies prior to sending a report.

Second, clarify that the reported must provide a tentative public
disclosure date and time in his first contact with linux-distros.

Fixes for sensitive bugs, such as those that might lead to privilege
escalations, may need to be coordinated with the private
-<linux-distros@vs.openwall.org> mailing list so that distribution vendors
-are well prepared to issue a fixed kernel upon public disclosure of the
-upstream fix. Distros will need some time to test the proposed patch and
-will generally request at least a few days of embargo, and vendor update
-publication prefers to happen Tuesday through Thursday. When appropriate,
-the security team can assist with this coordination, or the reporter can
-include linux-distros from the start. In this case, remember to prefix
-the email Subject line with "[vs]" as described in the linux-distros wiki:
