>They have refused to give us real details.
>A promise is now being made.
>If a bug is found in OpenSSH, which we believe to have security
>consequences, we wil inform FreeBSD last.
>Fair is fair.
>I really wish it was not this way, but after a week of trying to get the

>Without immediate action from them to repair their polcy, and a public
>apology for this, that policy will stand.
