Ah, yeah that could work.  I was looking at making a subsection under
"21.6. Reporting issues/bugs or getting help" if we do add it in the
manual.  There are going to be cases where a Buildroot CVE report
misreports because of our scripts, plus the case of an actual
dictionary bug.

Maybe we start on the wiki?
