I have heard several times, that we have a security team, but apart from a
couple of very old mail threads they seem to be invisible. As I deal with
security issues at least once a week it would be nice to have the members
on a public list. I apologize in advance if the list exist and I just
missed it.

It would also be nice to know the charter of the team, does it include
download, wiki etc.
