RE: Notice of Pilot Activity in CVE Auto WG - Supporting NVD's Participation


Looking at the discussion of "source" in the draft, I feel it's better 
to use something else for references - most source names are not 
associated with CNAs, and some, such as MISC, MLIST, and CONFIRM, are 
not even associated with a single site.

"source" is already defined in the JSON v4 as an object, meant to be 
used for such purposes:


If there is a CNA ID, use that instead of "REDHAT" or "CISCO"

  references: {
    reference_data: [
        name : "RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2018:0151"
        url: "https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:0151";,
        source : {
                CNA_ID: "CNA-72a82740-9249-4699-8803-5c4e4b590ce8",

This is OK. I remember seeing some CNAs already use this field.
