    Can we please post this to the appropriate place? If you have an 
issue with this decision that the Board actively discussed, please as 
the question there.  There is no reason to cross-post every message to 
both lists.  This was a swim lane issue discussed by the Board and also 
discussed at the face-to-face meeting we had in Rockville, MD in

            I submitted my CVE request through Mitre who notified me 
that open

            Weakness Filing before being sent to Mitre for inclusion in 
        This creates an obvious disconnect and potentially duplicate 
        and confusion, if researchers are being told to go to DWF for 
*all* OSS 
        assignments. For example, Apache is a CNA and has many OSS 
projects, but 
        vulnerabilities in their software should go to them, not DWF. 
Could MITRE 
        share the text that is being sent out currently?
