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.

Hi there!

Secteam has been pretty faithfully putting base issues into vuxml for the past year at least, thanks to the tireless work by Philip. The current issues were committed to vuxml 6 days ago. Apparently, the backend that serves the vuxml for clients  hasn’t been updated for the ports git transition. There is a pr for that already and hopefully it will be sorted soon.
