RE: [CVEPRI] Increasing numbers and timeliness of candidates
Steve and CVE Editorial Board Members,
For ISS, timeliness in the CVE is a very nice thing to have, but not
essential. Clusters that are spaced a little more regularly (as in every
week or two) would be easier to process than a burst of several hundred
When I'm in an obsessive mood, Pascal's mailing list that enumerates daily
additions, promotions, and changes is very helpful. I believe that this
service has been mentioned at least once in the past in this forum. The
daily changes are also useful for some of our other teams that prefer to use
CVE references on breaking issues.
Steve, I don't know if a compromise is possible where reviewer(s)
continuously review and release pre-candidates to be reported by Pascal's
mailing list. For groups where timeliness is not as important (or who would
like to handle issues at one time), you could continue sending
monthly/weekly/whatever voting clusters or vote online.
