[INTERIM] ACCEPT 15 candidates from RECENT-02 (Final 1/3/2000)



I have made an Interim Decision to ACCEPT the following 15 candidates
from the RECENT-02 cluster.  I will make a Final Decision on January
3, 2000.

RECENT-02 is our first "live" cluster to make it to this phase.  Since
it covers problems announced between December 4 and December 12, it
will have taken 4 to 5 weeks from the initial public announcement to
the assignment of a CVE number.  Given the 2.5-week minimum that is
built into the voting process (between proposal, interim decision, and
final decision) and a 1 week lag between public announcement and
proposal to the Board, these candidates were moved fairly rapidly.

It is reasonable to expect that this 4-5 week lag will continue with
the current voting process.  Note that RECENT-01 is not being moved to
Interim Decision yet, as one voter is still REVIEWING some of the
candidates.  This projects a 6-8 week lag for these candidates, as
well as the other RECENT-02 candidates that have not yet moved to
Interim Decision.  As we begin to process brand-new candidates, the
Editorial Board can consider whether this lag time is sufficient for
bringing new entries into CVE.

 Christey> Debian appears to be the developer of this package.
