An interesting post on patch scheduling and disclosure

I came across a post titled "More Patch Scheduling and Disclosure" this evening that talks about the problems of scheduling patch fixes from the security managers point of view and also the view of the manufacturers. The post is very interesting and well worth a read. It also links to another blog entry titled - (broken link) .. and the debate keeps raging that discusses the previous release of six advisories by Alex that were unfixed by Oracle. It also discusses the Mary Ann article from the same period.
