Replying to ioerror:

For Gentoo - we contact ???

I'm a Gentoo dev, but I don't maintain Tor itself, just Vidalia. The current maintainer is Christian Faulhammer but I don't mind receiving and fwding the news.
AFAIK he doesn't use Tor, so may be I can co-maintain it with him.

Gustavo (humpback A T was our last known gentoo maintainer.

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by chiiph

He's currently retired.

Christian Faulhammer was the gentoo person that sponsored arm too (as a proxy maintainer for Jesse) [1]. If he's interested then he seems like a fine choice. -Damian

Why not simply create a moderated security list at Add/remove people as needed.

Just rethinking this ticket, we wanted a list of people to receive early warning of tor security issues? I believe this is what we wanted. We have tor-security to which people can subscribe. Is this good enough? If so, we should close the ticket.

reassigning to ioerror, because I don't have an action anymore.

Currently chiiph and I are jointly maintaining tor for Gentoo. You should contact both of us:
