Salutations and Felicitations.

Not long ago, a call was put out to the Arch community to assist in the
monitoring and reporting of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures. [1][2]

The Arch community has responded by creating the Arch CVE Monitoring Team
(ACMT). The wiki page contains all of the information one would need to
begin helping.[3]  It gives clear and simple instructions to get you up to
speed on finding, reporting, and documenting CVE's.

This is a relatively simple way to make a major contribution to Arch
Linux.  If you've found yourself wanting to contribute to Arch, but haven't
yet found a way, then join the ACMT!

Please join us in helping keep Arch and its users secure!

"But how do I join?" I hear you asking.


1. Read the wiki page. [3]  You'll find a supple list of RSS feeds and
mailing lists that you can follow.
2. Feel the overwhelming sense of pride and honor that engulfs you as you
add your name to the ACMT list.[4]
3. Watch out for CVE's.  When (not if) you find one, file a bug report and
record it on CVE-2014 page. [5]

"Is there cake?"
The cake is a lie.  But the champagne flows like the river Rhine.

So come join the Team.

Kind Regards,
