It's certainly helpful for users of 0.20.20x. and 1.0.x, who can
immediately upgrade to 1.0.2, which was released yesterday. I agree it's
not very helpful for users of 0.23.x, but the assumption is that there are
far fewer of those than users of 0.20.20x and 1.0.x.

Now we know our "secure" deployment is vulnerable, but have no idea how to

Per the Apache security guidelines (
http://www.apache.org/security/committers.html), there is no up-stream JIRA.

I trust you understand the sensitivity of this issue, and the need to
balance a desire to disclose the issue fully to all users with a desire to
not publish exploits of the issue.
