[PROPOSAL] Cluster RECENT-27 - 15 candidates



The following cluster contains 15 candidates that were announced
between 7/1/2000 and 7/18/2000 (but all except CAN-2000-0567 were
announced on or before 7/11).

The candidates are listed in order of priority.  Priority 1 and
Priority 2 candidates both deal with varying levels of vendor
confirmation, so they should be easy to review and it can be trusted
that the problems are real.

If you discover that any RECENT-XX cluster is incomplete with respect
to the problems discovered during the associated time frame, please
send that information to me so that candidates can be assigned.
