Create new mailing list for plugin security announcements

    Problem: There is no central, comprehensive source to alert users when a new vulnerability is discovered in a plugin. Users must rely on numerous official and unofficial sources, and even then it's easy to miss the news.

    Solution: Create an official mailing list for plugin security news. Whenever a plugin is de-listed from the repository because of a security issue, send out an e-mail so that users will know to de-activate the plugin until a patched version has been committed.

    A feed for those of who despise being bombarded with email would be good too :)
