Re: Moving ahead

Hello all,

I believe that the comment Adam makes regarding CAN-1999-0014 should
mean that the description should be modified, not that the candidate
should be rejected.  Rejected, in my mind, means that there is no
vulnerability or that another CVE entry covers the vulnerability under
consideration.   Do I understand the meaning of Rejected and Modify
