Re: Methods for validating the current CVE

How about we cull out the "safe" canidates first and then
send that trimmed down list for verification. Non-MITRE folks,
do you think you could give faster turn around on a short list
who's entries map 1-1 to elements in the common tools? Vendors,
would it be helpful to get our opinion on the mappings? [many
thorny issues here]

Thus, the approach would be to get fast opinions on what we
can get agreement on quickly. Then turn to the more contentious
