Update security release process documentation #407

liggitt commented Dec 5, 2018

When this document was written, it presupposed a private release process, especially as it relates to pre-announcing security-related releases publicly.

Until we are able to pre-build and stage release artifacts for security releases, there is a gap of multiple hours between when fixes are pushed to public branches and when release artifacts for all release branches are available. Pre-announcing security-related changes will be landing during that time and drawing attention to the issues before fixed versions are available has consistently been deemed more harmful than helpful.

This PR updates this document to reflect the current security release process. As capability for private release build/staging is achieved, we can consider how to reintroduce public pre-release notification to the process.
