On GitHub, SECURITY.md files are the recommended way to describe how to
report vulnerabilities, and to set expectations how far back maintenance
tracks are updated with security bug fixes.

For example, when navigating to https://github.com/git/git/security/ users
would be guided to that SECURITY.md file. If it exists.

The purpose of this patch series is to add this file, describing Git's
security policy.

While at it, I also want to document the process how to coordinate the
ensuing embargoed releases. This is what the second patch is all about.

The reason for that is quite selfish, as I did two of them, and while I am
happy that such embargoed releases do not happen all that often, the
downside is that I keep forgetting all the details. So this document is not
only meant for knowledge sharing, but in particular to help me the next
time(s) I coordinate an embargoed release.

Many thanks to Junio who reviewed the first draft of this patch series
(where I had not yet separated out
Documentation/howto/coordinate-embargoed-releases.txt).
