Use CVE-2016-1899.

There is no CVE ID associated with either of these other changes,
which seem to be for defense-in-depth purposes.

Use CVE-2016-1900.

There is no CVE ID associated with this additional issue.

There is no CVE ID associated with this report, which seems to be
about adding new security-related functionality. We realize that other
perspectives may have existed, especially because the attacker for
both 2 and 3 is "A user who has write access to the git repository."
However, we typically don't want to have a CVE for a design change
that probably breaks a number of existing installations unless
reconfigured. Also, it seems that another possibility may have been
creation of a framework for segregating the user-uploaded HTML files
into a different origin (admittedly this may not be worthwhile because
running a cgit service with two domain names probably isn't what the
ordinary cgit customer wants).

Use CVE-2016-1901.
