Question about non-board-member posts to the list

Subject: Request to include Board members in a press release about CVE

Steve posted to the editorial board list, for members of the editorial 
board and MITRE, asking about a press release.

There was a single reply to this post:


To: "'cve-id-change@mitre.org'" 
Subject: Re: Request to include Board members in a press release about

Thomas Millar, from DHS, is not on the CVE editorial board per the 
membership list (by name or org):


Given that Mr. Millar replied within an hour to that post on a Thursady 
night, when he would not have been included in the general distribution 
list, it is fair to say that he was BCC'd. Further, that he was likely 
warned of the incoming post and encouraged to reply to it.

Would Steve or MITRE please make it clear what happened here? Why was Mr. 
Millar brought into this mail before hand, BCC'd on a mail to the list, 
and likely encouraged to reply? Given Steve's mail specifically asked 
repliers to "contact cve-id-change@mitre.org if you wish to participate", 
which is odd for an Editorial Board posting, it is doubly odd that a 
random non-board member would be involved.
