I don't like to reject messages (and so far haven't rejected any in this
thread), but let's please only post when we have something valuable to
add, which also fits the topic of this list.  In this thread, when
you're not CC'ing the OP (which I've re-added here), they probably won't
even see your comments.

You write "natsec-ey".  That feels off-topic here.  So is your message
actually off-topic and should have been rejected?   No need to reply,
just please apply the "is my message on-topic" filter before you post.

In general, if you've found something valuable, just share it where
appropriate - if it's a vulnerability in Open Source software, please
post in here.  You don't need a CVE for this, nor any CVE alternative.

Now that reads like pun on NIST's NVD.

We can come up with lots of other suggested names (and I had made some
suggestions too), but I think we don't need to continue much further.

So let's wind this thread down unless there's something truly new and
on-topic to add.  I'll start rejecting messages if I have to.
