CVE ID Syntax vote



=====================================================
VOTING BALLOT
=====================================================

FIRST CHOICE:

OPTION A

REASONS (first choice):

Option A keeps a fixed length CVE format; it is therefor easily handled
read and decoded and keeps the same familiarity of the current CVE format.

While this limit us to a million CVEs, I'm hoping we don't hit
that before we hit year 10,000.


*****************************************************

SECOND CHOICE:

OPTION B

REASONS (second choice):

This is no longer a fixed length CVE identifier; however, but it very
familiar.


*****************************************************

LAST CHOICE:

OPTION C

REASONS (last choice):


While the check-digit may help us preventing typos, if there is no
machine checking the digit, it makes little sense, e.g., when writing
a readme for a patch and typos are more likely because more digits need
to be transcribed.
