Re: what text is being sent to researchers re: OSS assignments?

And as has been discussed by the Board, we are working towards getting a landing page that helps direct the requester to the right CNA.  Currently the CNA-covered products link on the https://cveform.mitre.org points to the wrong place – in my mind.  It should point to the https://cve.mitre.org/cve/data_sources_product_coverage.html#products instead. (Consider that a suggestion MITRE. ;-))  In the future the discussed intent is to make it even easier for the requester to locate the proper place to submit a CVE request thus reducing potential confusion. Until then Kurt is handling it properly.

If I get an Apache request I would forward it to them, I have already done so with a pile of hackerone related requests.

Can we please post this to the appropriate place? If you have an issue with this decision that the Board actively discussed, please as the question there.  There is no reason to cross-post every message to both lists.  This was a swim lane issue discussed by the Board and also discussed at the face-to-face meeting we had in Rockville, MD in November.
