Re: Sources: Full and Partial Coverage



Hi,

I would like to repeat my question on which I have not received any responses
last time around - what is the goal we are trying to achieve by putting someone
into "fully covered" or "partially covered" basket? Are we trying to cover most 
important products? Most used products? Most well known stuff? Sources that we 
happen to know? Something else?

If we are indeed trying to cover the most important products (according to some
unspecifeid and fuzzy criteria) then we are missing things like OpenSSL and Citrix.
Additionally RedHat should be promoted to fully covered as it is used in many
products.

Thanks,

Gaus

The list that I posted last Friday broke your previous "must haves" into 2 sub-groups:  sources that the CVE team agrees should be "fully covered" and sources that the CVE team believes should be demoted to "partially covered status".

We would ask that you hold your suggestions for other partially covered sources (aka nice to have) source for later when we consider the full list of partially covered sources (in addition to those we suggest demoting).

Note, we may not be able to cover all of the sources being nominated as full coverage, so please consider and defend your nominations in that light.

There are no insolvable problems. 
The question is can you accept the solution?
