Date: Fri, 08 May 2020 18:16:09 +0200 From: Florian Weimer <fweimer@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Incentives for pre-release reporting My recollection (which could be wrong) suggests that vulnerabilities in unreleased, not really shipping versions do not usually receive CVE IDs. This has the problem that we cannot reward researchers with a CVE ID assignment if they report issues in features under development. If they waited until after the release, they'd get one, so that is creating the wrong incentive. Am I wrong about the CVE program requirements here? How do projects handle this? Thanks, Florian
