How do people find out about the HPE NonStop Git port? Where is it
distributed? Does that distribution point allow you to publish
release notes or other documentation?
Do you have a web page? That's another place you can publish
links to lots of resources that are not from the Git project.
The oss-security list <http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/>
allows anyone to participate. It is a place that people often
collaborate to figure out the impact of a published vulnerability, how
to mitigate it, etc. There are other similar mailing lists elsewhere,

What is Perl SCM? I don't know what you're talking about.
