As a member of the security team, I think Oracle's move to a private bug

I would support moving to a project that still does development in the
open and is not actively trying to hide details of security issues.
We already moved all our clients to our custom MariaDB RPM's. They are
optimized for performance and available for free (without support) in
our repository for Redhat/CentOS 5/6 (http://rpm.axivo.com/). In a
nutshell, MariaDB performs way better than any MySQL version we tested.
