Subject: Re: Re: CVE request for Calibre

Just do clarify: Issues 1 through 7.1 (8 issues) were released with the
current version that has been out for quite some time now. These require a
CVE. Issues 8 through 14 are ones introduced only during development and
were not released, and do not need a CVE.
