I'm sure you guys are all following the stories on slashdot about the 
problems that Debian is having due to password insecurity that led to a 
compromised account.

What sort of safeguards do we have?  Is this a good time to thnk about how 
we can improve our security *before* there is a problem rather than after?

Do we have some sort of general plan for what to do if one of our public 
boxes is compromised, so that we don't act randomly, or forget things in 
the panic of the moment?
