For better or worse, one of the arguments made was that if 2018 was the 
last time we had an announcement of this magnitude, we must not be 
Serious About Security™.

It is worth taking the time to introspect about whether the threshold 
for such announcements is properly calibrated. That's never a bad idea.

However, to suggest that there must be a quota met of major 
vulnerability announcements per unit of time met in order for a project 
to be credibly Serious About Security™ is ludicrous.
