Would you consider tham to be the same code base or a different code
base? If the same code base, share the CVE, if different code
bases, new CVE for it. Steve: do we have a policy for "Fresh" forks
as it were?

Well, Speed Dreams started with TORCS code base, but they have added
a lot new code, so I would say that right now they have different
code base, although they still share a big portion of the code (as
the vulnerable section).  Because of that I would consider It needs a
new CVE number, could you assign one to it?  :)

Their code bases may differ significantly in other parts, but it seems
the affected vulnerable code is still identical between the two.
Following are versions shortly before fixes got committed:

http://torcs.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/torcs/torcs/torcs/src/modules/graphic/ssggraph/grsound.cpp?revision=1.31.2.2&view=markup
http://speed-dreams.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/speed-dreams/trunk/src/modules/graphic/ssggraph/grsound.cpp?revision=4146&view=markup

In cases like this, same CVE is used for all project that use / embed
the same affected code.
