INTERIM DECISION: ACCEPT 45 various candidates (Final 9/24)



I have made an Interim Decision to ACCEPT the following candidates
from various clusters.  I will make a Final Decision on September 24.

These candidates satisfy the minimum vote requirement, as approved by
the Board in the INCLUSION content decision.  However, many of them
only have 2 non-MITRE votes.  Each candidate satisfies the other
portion of the voting requirement, however, i.e.  a non-voter's tool
checks for it, and/or the software vendor has confirmed the problem.

The candidates come from the following clusters:

   6 CGI
   1 BUF
  16 NTLOW
   4 DENY
   4 NOREFS
   4 MULT2
   7 MORELOW
   3 CDEC
