CVE request: mwlib < 0.13.5 DoS flaw
From: Vincent Danen <vdanen () redhat com>

Could a CVE be assigned to the following please?

It was reported that mwlib suffered from a flaw that could allow a
remote attacker to perform a denial of service attack on a mwlib
installation by forcing it to parse a specially-crafted #iferror magic
function.  This has been corrected in upstream version 0.13.5.
