However, it does not seem to be designed for requesting CVEs in open source products. The field "Vendor of the product(s)" says "Please ensure vendors are on the products and sources list," indicating the intent of MITRE to restrict usage of the form to specific products. This list  says "For open source software products not listed below, request a CVE ID through the Distributed Weakness Filing Project CNA." So, clearly we are supposed to request a CVE through the DWF project. (Or perhaps via Red Hat, since it seems like it's willing to allocate CVEs for miscellaneous Linux-related issues.) Anyway, I attempted to request a CVE using the DWF project's request form  several months ago, but have not yet received any response . So I am hesitant to request further CVEs from the DWF project, for fear that I won't receive a response and will wind up needing to make a duplicate CVE request somewhere else. How are other people getting open source CVEs right now? Has anybody else had luck getting a CVE via DWF? Should I be trying to do this through Red Hat instead? Or just by filling out MITRE's CVE form even though we're not really supposed to be using it?
