Did you just notice this today? I have been using some changelogs on 
there earlier this week (looking at new ones, not referencing old ones)

: CVE-2009-2368
: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=695068
: CVE-2009-2343
: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=694128
: CVE has approximately 824 URLs that point to shownotes.php.  Can anybody 
: beat us?

OSVDB has 1,410 =) Product of me spending too much time reading 

: (maybe it's not the great Bugtraq whiteout of 2001-2003 but it's still 
: incredibly inconvenient)

The white page is odd. Seems it would give a 404 if really gone. Wonder 
if this is a temporary error. Anyone know a SF admin type that could 
potentially answer?
