I believe we want to keep the membership of qemu-security reasonably
small. Primarily people who can commit to helping with the initial
triage to identify which specific subsystem maintainers to pull in.
In addition major consumers of QEMU with whom we need to coordinate
choice of disclosure date for embargoed images.

There is obviously a danger to the project if we mistakenly allow
membership from someone who is not acting in interests in the QEMU
project, so I think the bar needs to be reasonably high. IOW ideally
there should be some web of trust whereby some existing member(s)
knows the person/entity who is requesting acces. Other cases would
have to be evaluated case-by-case basis.
