It's very mixed, sometimes I get CVEs quickly, sometimes I don't get answers to requests. I would like the CVE process to be a better tool to organize this (as I've written in my blog post), but right now I feel it's not working reliably enough for that. At some point I stopped caring too much about CVEs because I felt waiting for them stops me from reporting more issues. cu, -- Hanno Böck http://hboeck.de/ mail/jabber: hanno@...eck.de GPG: BBB51E42 Content of type "application/pgp-signature" skipped
