Thanks Luke, this is helpful.  If it's desirable to get all those things done 
for security updates before they enter repos, I understand that it will slow 
them down.  I still don't like it though.  Is there an estimate how much that 
is/will be on the average?

BTW, should I have been aware of the process change, was it announced 
somewhere?

Ok.  Could something like this be added to Security/TrackingBugs in Wiki?
