While I am amused that your first words after "hopefully will attract fewer trolls" themselves
include a mean-spirited troll, I'm sorry you think a collaborative security mailing list with
shared, collaborative ownership is "redundant". 

We clearly have very different views of the world. I continue to think such a list holds great
opportunity for collaboration since it was working in that role for many months, but it's
hard to see how it can now be the securityteam@ list, unfortunately (unless your'e speaking
alone, of course).

Hard to see how that would work since it would require the source to be highly similar and
that looks unlikely to be the case.

Hard to see how two very different source trees can have a shared browser. It would be best
for Apache to run its own instance.

Plausible in the future but a little early to be proposing it - YAGNI applies.

I believe I once proposed such a thing, and was told by both communities that licensing issues
would largely prevent it.

Delighted to hear you are now such a fan of co-operation though, Rob. I'll be sure to support
any viable proposals you present to both communities.
