[PROPOSAL] Cluster LINUX-99 - 26 legacy candidates



The following cluster contains 26 candidates, all of which are
documented in at least one advisory that was published by a Linux
vendor in 1999.

Most candidates have a "priority 1" since they are confirmed by the
vendor.  Others are priority 3 because they are affected by content
decisions.

There are a few 1999 advisories that are not yet covered by
candidates.  They are still being worked on behind the scenes.  In
some cases, the advisory is so abstract that there is not enough
information to tell if it is related to an existing issue or not.
Other advisories are related to various software packages that had
numerous vulnerabilities in a short time, so it requires deeper
analysis to wade through the morass and make sure that there is no
duplication with existing candidates (wu-ftpd/ProFTPD is an example).
Members of the CVE content team are conducting this deeper analysis,
as well as preparing the next round of legacy candidates from all the
Board members (and some non-Board members) who are contributing their
vulnerability databases to this effort.

Summary of votes to use (in ascending order of "severity")
----------------------------------------------------------

ACCEPT - voter accepts the candidate as proposed
NOOP - voter has no opinion on the candidate
MODIFY - voter wants to change some MINOR detail (e.g. reference/description)
REVIEWING - voter is reviewing/researching the candidate, or needs more info
RECAST - candidate must be significantly modified, e.g. split or merged
REJECT - candidate is "not a vulnerability", or a duplicate, etc.

1) Please write your vote on the line that starts with "VOTE: ".  If
   you want to add comments or details, add them to lines after the
   VOTE: line.

2) If you see any missing references, please mention them so that they
   can be included.  References help greatly during mapping.

3) Note that a "MODIFY" is treated as an "ACCEPT" when counting votes.
   So if you don't have sufficient information for a candidate but you
   don't want to NOOP, use a REVIEWING.

********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE **********

Please keep in mind that your vote and comments will be recorded and
publicly viewable in the mailing list archives or in other formats.
