RE: request: removal of Alan Paller from the CEB (fwd)


Thank you for your vision and advocacy for CVE throughout the years. 
From its founding in 1999, CVE has grown to become the de facto 
standard for security vulnerability identification and your leadership 
in promoting CVE in the community has been vital in its adoption. 

We will remove you from the CVE Board list and from related e-mail 
lists as you have requested. 

Thanks again for your service,

of the project, the MITRE folks are probably just being kind rather 
than careless. 

The work you are like doing is important, and I'm sorry I've been a
