Subject: CVE requests: MediaWiki 1.22.3, 1.21.6 and 1.19.12 release

Good morning,

As noted in https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=503012 a few 
security bugs are fixed in the 1.22.3, 1.21.6 and 1.19.12 MediaWiki release:

http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/mediawiki-announce/2014-February/000141.html

Can CVEs be assigned to the following (if they are all CVE worthy)?

The MediaWiki 1.22.3, 1.21.6 and 1.19.12 release announcement notes:

* (bug 60771) SECURITY: Disallow uploading SVG files using non-whitelisted
   namespaces. Also disallow iframe elements. User will get an error
   including the namespace name if they use a non- whitelisted namespace.

An attacker could perform cross-site scripting attacks by uploading 
crafted SVG images.

The versions of MediaWiki in Fedora and EPEL 6 are affected. I have not 
tested EPEL 5.
