This is something the Drupal world gets right, IMO. Lots of security  
information consolidated here: http://drupal.org/security also  
available as RSS feeds and ALSO available as email. I subscribed to  
the emails for a while and was really impressed that they covered not  
just core but issues with 3rd party Drupal modules as well.  This kind  
of thing could have a huge security benefit for WP.
