That's on the mentors of a given project to decide.  I can see where
this could be a hardship and some mentor would be perfectly happy to
have their fellow mentors address security issues.  But they all should
be invited to participate, perhaps?  However, if there are 8 mentors,
that's 5 too many unless they actively are coding and testing the fixed

That can be remedied today.  Jukka, if you like, please join the ASF
wide security team, at minimum as an observer.  I suggest this for two
reasons, the obvious one of seeing all security related traffic that
arises from any incubating project, but as importantly, perhaps you
will recognize that an incident at a TLP bears some direct impact or
hints at a possibility similar defect at an incubating project.  We
already do this, but as IPMC chair, your eyes would be most helpful.
