Re: [PROPOSAL] Cluster RECENT-27 - 15 candidates



* Steven M. Christey (coley@LINUS.MITRE.ORG) [000719 23:42]:
> The following cluster contains 15 candidates that were announced
> between 7/1/2000 and 7/18/2000 (but all except CAN-2000-0567 were
> announced on or before 7/11).
> 
> The candidates are listed in order of priority.  Priority 1 and
> Priority 2 candidates both deal with varying levels of vendor
> confirmation, so they should be easy to review and it can be trusted
> that the problems are real.
> 
> If you discover that any RECENT-XX cluster is incomplete with respect
> to the problems discovered during the associated time frame, please
> send that information to me so that candidates can be assigned.
