Thanks! TLS/SSL is already covered. :) I have invited Cory Benfield
(python-requests, urllib3, hyper). Cory and I are co-chairing a
presentation about the future of TLS/SSL in Python core and Python
ecosystem together. Let's hope 20 minutes are enough.

I have also proposed a short recap of Python Security, PSRT and Coverity
Scan activity in the past year. I also like to address communications of
security fixes. From the bug tracker it is not immediately visible,
which Python releases contains a fix. The changelog doesn't highlight
security fixes, too. This allowed one nasty bug to fly under the radar
and caused a downstream $VENDOR to not backport a fix. I'd like to have
security issues marked in the changelog, e.g. with "[S]" or "[SECURITY]"
