FINAL DECISION: ACCEPT 37 various candidates



I have made a Final Decision to ACCEPT the following candidates.
These candidates are now assigned CVE names as noted below.  Voting
details and comments are provided afterwards.

The CVE names for candidates that reach Final Decision should be
regarded as stable.  In the case of these and all other candidates
that reach Final Decision during this validation period, accepted
candidates won't reach Publication phase until CVE goes fully public.
The only difference between Publication and Final Decision is that the
CVE name is officially "announced" by MITRE during Publication.

- Steve
