From a security handling perspective, you are doing quite fine, I
think. At least for the first security issue, you offered a minimal
patch (I didn't look at the recent, though). You publish new
revisions to fix security bugs (instead of just fixing them in the
repository). You write your own security advisories which contain
enough information to carry out an independent threat assessment.

You don't hide things under the carpet for an extended period of time,
as it is expect from open source software projects nowadays. However,
that's actually rather refreshing. 8-)
