I think there was some confusion earlier, when Codehaus shut down so
that didn't help.
There have been couple of patches there, but not a ton.

Ok. Yeah, if that was trivially easy to solve, it would already have I'm sure :)

Ok good. I wrote it as I didn't see in-depth explanations. And since
it's not trivially easy to understand
due to many reasons. Not the least because Default Typing is kind of

Yea, that would seem like the simplest approach.

I like issue trackers, to a degree, but big part may be just for my own benefit.
Part of the problem is also that although it is possible to file an
CVE, that has its trade-offs;
on one hand, there is the whole ecosystem for downstream that gets
notified (plus side).
Downside that there seems to be little control over how things get
handled (at least to me it seems
like a black box), so it's maybe more a placeholder than useful for
storing anything about state.
Then again, if and when CVE entries are public, visibility isn't much
lower than for github issue entries.
