While I'm personally not a fan of this, if people want it, we should
probably do it.

Not really, look at what's there to get an idea of how it goes.

Here is the current list:

avail | mjc,bressers,jorton,notting,sopwith,katzj,holtmann | fedora-security
avail | lkundrak | fedora-security
avail | jkeating,ausil,tibbs,kaboom,scop,questor | fedora-security

If you're willing to help, access can be granted.

Ideally, yes.  I however don't want people to duplicate work.  I suspect
the easiest way is going to be for someone to just mark a block of ids as
what they're working on.  Something like

**** bressers ****
CVE blah blah blah
... ===> Lots of CVE ids here
CVE blah blah blah
**** bressers ****

Check in some bits to make it known you're on it, then start wading through
the manure.


Thanks.
