For Subversion we maintain a pre-notification list that contains admin
contacts for some large installations and a script to email all of them
individually (i.e., the same email message N times, to avoid BCC).
(Members can see that at /pmc/subversion/security in the private repository.)
We email the fix when it's ready, so they can install it ahead of time.
