Subject: CVE request: devscripts (uscan) command execution flaw

Good morning,

A flaw was reported in the uscan script of devscripts:

>From that bug report:

The newfangled debian/copyright-driven repacking can be exploited by
malicious upstream to execute arbitrary code.

The fix:;a=commitdiff;h=91f05b5

Can a CVE please be assigned? (I guess this is not Debian specific,
devscripts looks like it is/will be in the next Fedora release.)
