It would be nice if someone 'official' (ala TDF) could post the
CVE-2012-0037 notice on both the user and announce lists.

The public was not supposed to know of this CVE, people should be
given time to update to the fixed version before.

See e.g.
http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/10/05/the-document-foundation-publishes-details-of-libreoffice-3-4-3-security-fixes/

"Following industry best practice, details of security fixes are
withheld until users have been given time to migrate to the new
version."

I think that you and Simon are missing the message I was attempting to
convey. I'll repeat my original question:

Why is it that "security advisories" such as this:

https://www.libreoffice.org/advisories/CVE-2012-0037/

are not posted on the user or announce lists?

So I fail to understand why you & Simon seem to think that I'm
complaining about not receiving the notice prior to the the LO public
announcement. My posting of how I found out about the security issue
(Redhat bug report & AOO user list), was meant to point out that I do
not check into www.libreoffice.org daily; I do however check the lists
that I'm subscribed to on a regular basis (user/announce/security
announce/bug/etc lists.

LibreOffice/TDF does not have a 'Security Announce' list. Why so much
resistance in asking that the same advisory that is posted on the web
site, be posted  on the User and Announce lists as well? Or at least the
User list (and any official web forums if there is one) so that users
are made aware & can take action?

Not posting such annoucements on the LO User list results in thread like
this:

[libreoffice-users] CVE-2012-0337
