Because there are entries mainly for ports and vuxml is port too. But 
the responsible side for vulnerabilities in base is Security Officer 
Team. They are publishing SAs, they should create and submit entries to 
vuxml. They are almost always lacking behind, sometimes for months. I 
tried created patches with entries in the past because I am the author 
of base-audit script and maintainer of the port but then it was waiting 
for a long time to have it confirmed by Security Officer Team.

I fought with this many times.

Responsibilities of the FreeBSD Ports Security Team
