See for example "Attendees agreed that CVE should include problems in beta software, provided that the beta code was intended for public dissemination" in the http://cve.mitre.org/data/board/archives/2000-03/msg00007.html post. The CVEs of interest to the community tend to be ones that are "common" -- in other words, they are present at multiple sites, and a CVE ID would actually be used (typically in multiple contexts) as the mechanism for naming and tracking the vulnerability. For the specific case of staging drivers, a relevant example is "this driver is enabled in the Debian 6.0 kernel" for: http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2011/08/09/7 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2909 So, any background about the discovery would be helpful, e.g., is the driver enabled in a distribution, or is someone shipping a Linux-based appliance or device that relies on the driver. The full list is substantial -- http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/STAGING.html seems relevant although that's a third-party presentation and not directly the primary source. - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJTGNlEAAoJEKllVAevmvmsaAYIAMlV3r9YhS0rD2kb3PCenoT6 PVcAYWuyIu+IDWp74V2r6Bg6mKZzyyVMiqpw8CgNsK2zfHtcEDsrIcttIWK6VbJj Pxkc0jQUdfqNhg/Z6gtqhUZ4Wnee9vBQo4cFfKBhlqQuPz/wV/kHqMic57n4RcCS /n2KufYn2mB5bZMUkxM0Ky7DJslrUtyIsG7APpgPT0adcv/XhFYVAo54bvfyZIqo RczpMPQRq9ke/xbM5x0e6UMSU43337GcRZs8w8Cb5Tr1/7vNX+7G/PqFxo5RjRz7 vVjVF/5pgna+dWzcREARCMrqTp6QrBTFVeuiNPC2Re8fczxNByZCwx2q9Xn3Ji4= =wMyp -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
