If I read this correctly, you are requesting a Bugzilla instance be 
stood up to track security issues? Since we have no community project 
budget to fund any type of hosting, nor any community interest to fund a 
trust/budget, this would have to be a donated service. Maybe a 
participating company would be willing to host and care for this service?

Alternatively, can the response team use a service that we already have? 
Just thinking, I have no details, but maybe a new Github group/repo?
