Great.  We will hopefully get this out in the next few weeks (say, by
the end of May?) as a coordinated release.

Would you like us to request a CVE for this, or would you?  If you
would like us to request it, we will need the relevant information
from you (how you would like to be credited, a brief summary, etc.).
If you would like to request it, please coordinate with us to ensure
that the embargo is correct.

Thanks for helping us make libpurple better!
