That sounds reasonable; also I wouldn't object when someone says
that there's nothing wrong with putting it on a "risks that we
choose not to address" list.

My objection was against a -clearly false- FUD statement of a
Mono project leader about DotGNU having risks in this area.

Also I would like to know what exactly the position of the Mono
project leadership is concerning what security threats should
be taken into consideration, so that I can make sure that I won't
accidentally misrepresent their position.

I do feel different but I have been at the receiving end of so much
hostility from Mono project leaders that now I'm very sure that I'm
not interested in contributing to Mono, at least as long as these
people are leading.

Greetings, Norbert.
