W changelog-references-temp-security-identifier

All reports of changelog-references-temp-security-identifier for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The changelog entry references a temporary security identifier, like "TEMP-0000000-2FC21E".

The TEMP identifier will disappear in the future once a proper CVE identifier has been assigned. Therefore it is useless as an external reference. Even worse, the identifier is not stable and may change even before a CVE is allocated.

If a CVE has been allocated, please use that instead. Otherwise, please replace the TEMP identifier with a short description of the issue.

Refer to and for details.

Severity: warning
