Documenting security issues in the OpenBSD Ports & Packages Collection

Contributed by robert on from the port-and-packages dept.

Security issues that affect the OpenBSD Ports & Packages Collection are documented using the Vulnerabilities and Exposures Markup Language (VuXML).
We decided to create this document because It is more easier for a user to follow security issues in one place. A page is availabe for this on the following URL
A mailing list will be available soon, so you can subscribe if you want to recieve security announces about OpenBSD ports & packages.
If you want to have the VuXML document itself, you can do it with CVS.

$ cvs -d co vuxml/vuln.xml
