The Security Officer's main responsibility is to coordinate information exchange with others in the security community and in the FreeBSD project. The Security Officer is also responsible for taking action when security problems are reported and promoting proactive development behavior when it comes to security.

However, to create or implement a patch, the Security Officer has the Security Officer Team <email></email> to help do the work.
Source Repository Manager
The Source Repository Manager is the only one who is allowed to directly modify the repository without using the <xref linkend="tool-svn"/> tool.

The source repository manager has the authority to back out commits if this is necessary to resolve a SVN technical problem.
Hat held by: the Source Repository Manager <email></email>.
