What they did seems unreasonable to me. There is no reason I can think of
that should have prevented them for explaining what was going on in general.
If someone's account was compromized and they didn't know if any of the
distributed rpms were trojaned, then that's what they should have said.
The way it has been handled is not appropiate for an open project and I expect
things to be handled much more openly the next time something similar happens.
Just because people didn't know the full extent of the problem doesn't
excuse them from letting the community know what was going on and in general
terms why.
