(We wanted to have two CVE IDs because of the following difference in
how 2.x and 3.x are affected. We realize that this is perhaps a
marginal case for that, because the 3.x code is essentially just:

  self.log.warn("/api/notebooks is deprecated, use /api/contents")
  self.redirect(url_path_join(
      self.base_url,
      'api/contents',

)

> /api/contents (3.0-3.1)

Use CVE-2015-4706 for the /api/contents path.


> /api/notebooks (2.0-2.4, 3.0-3.1)

Use CVE-2015-4707 for the /api/notebooks path.
