To me the importnt comments in the article were Shamos's where he said about half the errors he found in his tests should have been trapped back at the ITA. And Avi Ruben's comments that the ITA ought to include a component of hacker-style hardening testing.

In any case, I think this is an entre for several actions
1) it shows the continued need for EAC oversight. There had been talk of disbanding it without replacement.
2) It shows the possible rationale for (Open) source respositories as proposed by the OVC.
3) It shows the strength of the Open source approach in general.
