Security advisories -- which distributions?


Many times Linux security advisories as pretty distribution-specific.
The fixes and updates are always specific to a distribution.

In the past I've been taking a pretty laid-back role in determining
which distribution security advisories I should post to the list.
E.g, if I hear about a fix for an obscure bug in an even more obscure
distribution of Linux, I don't forward it to the list (there /are/
over a 100 distributions, after all).  I mainly concentrate on RedHat,
SuSE, Debian, Mandrake, Corel, Slackware and TurboLinux, which I
/believe/ covers 99.99% of the Linux users in India.

However, if there's any other distribution which is in popular among
the list users, please let me know so that I can include their
advisories too on the list.

Any other suggestions/flames/advice on this topic are also welcome.
