I was not commenting on any particular vulnerability. I was 
suggesting that rather than posting vulnerabilities directly to this 
list, send them to Patrick so that he can assess them first.

If the vulnerability has not been addressed, a public posting just 
gives crackers notice

If the vulnerability has been addressed, but the posting makes it 
sound new, it just makes PmWiki look less secure than it really is.
