Yes, I agree that a full list of CERT advisories of the last year is
less useful than the several years old breakdown of CERT advisories
grouped by affected operating system.

Also, surely such information is provided via XML somewhere and so if
it was desired it should be automatically syndicated, not copied in to
this document manually.
