As the ongoing discussion did not result in general concerns while going
on for approximately 3 weeks, we decided to stick to the current policy
and keep this list exclusively for announcements. The description of
this mailing list will be adjusted accordingly to avoid  possible confusion.
If any security related topic pops up and somebody feels like it should
be discussed please go ahead and create a thread on arch-general.
