RE: [oss-security] Concerns about CVE coverage shrinking - direct impact to researchers/companies

Hi Kurt and David,

The CVE team is holding a series of internal meetings related to the 
referenced issues, including one tomorrow. There is not a meeting with 
the Editorial Board (or a subset of Editorial Board members) scheduled 
for or being held tomorrow. 

We would like to propose an Editorial Board meeting to address issues 
related to CVE operations, scalability, and community feedback, as was 
first suggested by Kent Landfield on January 5, 2016. (Full discussion 
thread available at: 

 The internal meetings referenced above will enable us to come to that 
Editorial Board meeting with specific recommendations and proposed next 

Best Regards,
