This would be a bad idea and lead to much confusion, especially for people that have already consumed this CVE and written up reports that in turn have been shipped to other people/etc. Can we REJECT this CVE if the issue is not a security issue, obviously if it is a security issue we should keep this CVE. Additionally if we can get a new CVE for Bz981942 that would be great, thanks! >> >> I haven't yet seen an upstream bug for it; this change happened before >> upstream required bugs being filed for all user-visible changes. >> > > -- Kurt Seifried -- Red Hat -- Product Security -- Cloud PGP A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 [ CONTENT OF TYPE application/pgp-signature SKIPPED ]
