A number of members of Debian's testing security team, and (of course) a key member of the stable security team will be attending the Oldenburg developer's meeting this September (21st to 25th).
Since the testing security team has been hoping to get together in person sometime and would also like to meet with Debian's established security team to find ways to work together better and learn from them, this seems like a good opportunity to do that. (We had also hoped to meet with some members of Ubuntu's security team for similar reasons, but unfortunatly none of them expect to be able to attend.)
Some goals for the meeting include:
- Finish and polish the procedure for issuing advisories.
- Learn what procedures the stable security team uses and see if we can adapt them to do a better job.
- Find ways to avoid duplicating work between the security teams.
- If we have nothing else to do, reduce the numnber of open holes in testing as much as we can.
Please add your ideas/plans above so we can put together an agenda for the meeting.
