Hi all,

there was a security update to the underlying library to one of my
bindings last night (lz4) and it got me thinking - how do we handle
security updates as a community? I typically find out from IRC or
twitter now, which isn't particularly reliable. Might it be possible
to mark an update on Hackage as a security update rather than feature


A UNIX signature isn't a return address, it's the ASCII equivalent of a
black velvet clown painting. It's a rectangle of carets surrounding a
quote from a literary giant of weeniedom like Heinlein or Dr. Who.
