Ask the infrastructure team for a tracker instance.  That would probably be
more fruitful of an outlet than in the thread of this one issue.  (I'm not
trying to be flippant, I think a private issue tracker for vulnerabilities
is a really good idea, I just don't think that bemoaning the lack of one in
a thread about an FTP issue is likely to get much done.)
