Using a bug tracker has the notable advantage over direct email CC's
that if the security triage team needs to pull in a  domain specific
expert, that newly added person can still see the full history of
discussion on the bug.

With individual email CC's, the previous discussions are essentially
a information blackhole until the security triage team is good enough
to forward the full discussion history (this essentially never happens
in IME). Mailing list also has that easy archive access benefit.

Is it possible to setup people to be able to view launchpad private
bugs, without also making them full admins for the QEMU launchpad
project ?

Does launchpad still send clear text email notifications to the
permitted admins for private bugs ? I recall I used to get clear
text emails for private bugs in the past for non-QEMU projects.
This reduces the security benefits of launchpad compared to
email, though it is still a clear win in terms of triage process
most likely.
