Re: CVE Advancements



As long as the focus would be discussing and deciding CVE related issues
and talking about the path forward for CVE .  That was the real purpose
of my suggestion.  We need to address the short term problems while
planning for the long term future of CVE on a larger scale.  I'd also like
to have this be restricted to the Editorial Board since they are the ones
highly familiar with the existing problems and the requisite history.
Definitely dont want outsiders that needs educating. That cuts into the
time for discussions and solution development.
