I must agree, I didn't know where to get security updates for Slack until recently. And I must say that I also expected an announcement for the 10.1 beta on the frontpage. But I won't go saying that I don't 'trust' a distro for not doing so!
I think Pat really does care about the users but not in a way that you will expect. The man can be described as a "lone star sherrif" and I think in effect that reflects on the distro: you have to be a lone star sheriff yourself to really get your system the way you want it. And that's what I like about Slack, being sheriff of my own system.
But if you don't like it, try another distro, but don't go telling that you don't 'trust' Slack, 'cause that just doesn't make sense.
