FINAL DECISION: ACCEPT 1 candidate from VEN-others cluster

I have made a Final Decision to ACCEPT the following candidates.
These candidates are now assigned CVE names as noted below.  Voting
details and comments are provided afterwards.

The CVE names for candidates that reach Final Decision should be
regarded as stable.  In the case of these and all other candidates
that reach Final Decision during this validation period, accepted
candidates won't reach Publication phase until the CVE goes fully
public.  The only difference between Publication and Final Decision is
that the CVE name is officially "announced" by MITRE during
