hey guys,

i've just spent some time going through all of the emails sent back and
forth regarding php, and i've compiled what i think is the authoritative
list of open CVE's against php.

there's still that one scanf issue that i've heard conflicting decisions
on from joey/moritz, but otherwise i think we came to agreement on all
the other ones.  the ones which are "no" have the reason why they are
rejected in parenthesis, and the ones marked "yes" have a brief summary
of the CVE as a reminder.

unless i hear otherwise, i'll assemble a security NMU for the yes's.
and please mention anything you see missing.

CVE-2002-1954: no (no support for XSS fixes in phpinfo)
