It depends a bit on our future strategy towards mailing lists; at least
for now, crux@ is probably the best place to send it to, since there's
no reason to hide them (or to be not interested in them).

The only counter argument (which is hopefully not going to be true for a
long time) is that there are no such notifications for base and opt due
to the separation of the CVS repositories. Having security message on
crux@ somewhat implies (at least for new users) that this covers
everything, which currently is not true. Because of that, I thought that
for the time being, we could send it to something like
'clc-security-notifications', and move it over to crux@ once we have a
common CVS repository.

Kind regards, Johannes
