RE: CVE ID Syntax Change and Options
Most/all of our tools and software can already handle modified CVE identifiers. Our preference would be either one or two leading zeros.

Subject: RE: CVE ID Syntax Change and Options
We've written most of our tools to handle CVE-\d+-\d+ already, so "extra
digits" is our preferred option, and out of those a preference would be a
fixed number of digits with leading 0s to reduce c&p errors.
