Description

Hi There,

It would be great if we can have news feed for any security advisories or releases on security issues of plugins/themes so that it will help developers to know.

There is similar to what Drupal.org does for any user contributed modules/themes - https://www.drupal.org/security/contrib

Thanks & regards,
Sandeep

Plugin and Theme security issues are not announced or shared out by teams on .org. Other services have that handled pretty well already.

Personally, I feel like having a feed to announce things like this in plugins and themes would just shame authors and cause alarm without bringing much gain for users.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
