The RPM Fusion project is completely separate, so you will not find any security announcements on From a look on, I cannot find any security announcements there either. I doubt they do have any process for tracking security bugs. RPM Fusion probably just ignores the security bugs and updates packages when a developer has time for that.

You may subscribe to the RSS feed of all builds, that will give you the update information. Or use dnf updateinfo.

PS: Yes, that website does not even have TLS even though it hosts important packaging infrastructure. As far as I have seen, the infrastructure of any non-official repo (except the coprs, maybe) is like this: horribly insecure. They have shipped unsigned builds for a long time and some repository descriptions still default to not checking repository signatures.

I have not seen any update information from rpmfusion when running dnf updateinfo.
