You hold no @centos.org, nor role beyond mailing list 
participant.  A non-enumerated list is worse than useless, as 
it falsely causes concern.  So near as I can tell (and I read 
ALL bug filings, centdor-sec, and a daily custom locally 
produced report of all upstream produced updates), you do NOT 
file bugs in the bug tracker to make formal your concern. 
You talk, just to make noise.

Some updates in question just showed up today.  A couple on 
the 8th
 	https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0020.html
 	https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0001.html
and a clutch on the 7th

Just WHAT do you have in mind?

How about you NOT overstep your role? -- Your self-appointed 
presence as monitor in this list, and of the project are 
tiresome, not official, and frankly not helpful.  You hide 
behind a throwaway email provider.

How about just NOT popping off with whatever little thought 
wanders into your head for two days running?
