I can assure you there is no CVE-related bias whatsoever towards commercial software, or against OSS. Never has been any CVE-related bias against OSS, and I can't imagine there ever will be. I'm a big OSS fan and advocate, and although I will only speak for myself, I'd be willing to bet that everybody else involved with the CVE project is too. As far as sending copies of CVE web form submissions to oss-sec, or posting anywhere else, keep in mind that much of that info needs to be embargoed until a vendor security advisory is published.
