Hi Cristián,

what exactly do you consider a proper notification?

I might have a wrong impression caused by the small sample size but none
of the two security issues I got in touch with before this year was
announced properly, I think.

[1] wasn't mentioned anywhere on qt.io and I didn't notice it on
announce at qt-project.org, either.

[2] was mentioned in a blog post, but I could not find any public steps
for reproducing the issue, so one cannot test whether their software is

Please correct me if I missed something.
