I contacted them once, but I got absolutely no response.  I haven't
requested or seen a CVE allocated for the Locale::Maketext
vulnerability.  If the Perl Security Team is able to allocate one, feel
free; if not, I can see if the Debian Security Team can allocate one.  I
know they have done this for other projects in the past.  To the best of
my knowledge, cPanel has no way to allocate CVEs ourselves.
