Differences between date of release of security update between distros


Code:
SUSE-SU-2023:0056-1: moderate: Security update for libksba  Jan 9 2023
USN-5787-1: Libksba vulnerability 5 January 2023
[21 Dec 2022] DSA-5305-1 libksba security update
https://lists.opensuse.org/archives/....opensuse.org/

https://ubuntu.com/security/notices?...ils=&offset=10

https://www.debian.org/security/index.en.html

Is it please usual such difference ? I apply security updates ASAP and such difference is a surprise for me.

Different distros have different testing methodologies and schedules, it's normal for there to be a difference.

Some distros may have a lot of resources to throw at testing patches to a vulnerability, some may not.

I understand I just expected better results for corporate distros.

Another results:
Fedora 21 Dec 2022 https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/...uildID=2102910
[slackware-security] libksba (SSA:2022-354-01) Date: Tue, 20 Dec 2022 http://www.slackware.com/security/vi...ecurity.370831

CentOS: info still unavailable https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/

Best result among distros I checked:
gentoo 2022-12-07 https://security.gentoo.org/glsa/202212-07

Hello Everyone,

The first major difference between various Linux distributions is their target audiences and systems. For example, some distributions are customized for desktop systems, some distributions are customized for server systems, and some distributions are customized for old machines, and so on.

Usually, distributions are designed for specific purposes or to provide an environment to perform particular functions.

The second major difference between distributions is the process of installing and updating applications. Different distributions use different application installation and management tools, called package management tools.

The next big difference is how distributions provide support and updates. Some distributions are maintained by a community of volunteers while others are maintained and supported by a commercial vendor.

If a distribution is maintained by a community, you will get all updates and supports free of cost. But if a distribution is maintained by a commercial vendor, you may have to pay for support services, updates, and maintenance.

Thanks,
Atonal
