Thanks, but I'd rather not have to worry about securing my inbox
against hackers looking for zero-day exploits. :-/

Personally I'm fine with after-the-fact oversight like now with the
OpenOffice report. I think we can trust the security team and other
involved people to make decisions without active interference or
real-time observation. If it turns out that in retrospect some things
could have been handled better, we can handle that with feedback from
threads like this one.

If there are cases where more active oversight or feedback is desired
(for example if there's a hint that a broader range of projects is
affected by an issue, or there's some complex licensing issue
regarding a newly incubated project), I'd rather have the security
team explicitly reach out and ask for more involvement from us in
specific cases.
