- If a change is security related, and obviously needed, then why wasn't it made earlier? Didn't that make a mockery of all the "many eyes" arguments oft touted in favor of Open Source?
"Many eyes" rarely helps; you need to get the right eyes to look at a bug. If you follow vulnerabilities, you'll notice a handful of people find most of the bugs. The main advantage of open source is that the code is available for those eyes to view.
