Wireless VE

There is a new CVE clone effort out there for Wireless vulnerabilities 
(WVE). This brings up several issues:
- What is the status of CVE, given that the editorial board hasn't had 
any activity for many many months?
- Does this WVE effort detract from CVE and add confusion to the world 
by coming up with a second set of standard names for things that CVE 
covers, too? Or is it good to get more information categorized out there 
in the world?

Although their entry format is very similar to CVE (as well as their 
structure, including an Editorial Board), they include 2 categories of 
entries: Vulnerabilities and Exploits. They use the same namespace 
(WVE-2005-????) for both vulns & exploits.

Any ideas or comments?
