I have actually added the following blurb to the fixing-a-bug-security.rst (which I will be submitting for merge soon):

Test and Submit your work

At this point the process is the same as for :doc:`fixing a regular bug in
Ubuntu</fixing-a-bug>`. Specifically, you will want to:

 #. Build your package and verify that it compiles without error and without
    any added compiler warnings
 #. Upgrade to the new version of the package from the previous version
 #. Test that the new package fixes the vulnerability and does not introduce
    any regressions
 #. Submit your work via a Launchpad bug being sure to mark the bug as a
    security bug and to subscribe ``ubuntu-security-sponsors``

This might be enough to close this bug.
