I agree with the above reasoning, but Petteri raised a good point about "old bugs". I suggest that for old bugs we swap the maintainer and the arch team so that the maintainer is added to CC and the arch team is assigned the bug. If and or when the bug is resolved, the maintainer can reassign the bug again. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.14 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJLmsb4AAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEPqFAQALJvPNGfW1XGUvNptAIxyWl4 5XNRWH4cCgZMgOlESI5DeYRbBySw2ad36CPgm1SLe9AbXtpiDwzNlU4CSZuVZSRZ TsQ82/JjWBgYIkRUu81UmzwqGCC8sFwJfKjOGCwrq+bcC0M30GwtGgtRUW9+B8mO SdJ56QZdAUiUmHKG9zEW/xiE1U3VThp2Y/PwZP/BsRZqNQK/UpN+m2kPw4lYepGN uz9OryVCRXIkIaiPvcX5f94yLCcCtUDQ7JuLuc0tZYQbEKhTPcDtyf0aCfMUIfgr dtSulB6N0L4c03aHqpTCc5BeZwKlbh1VSTEBs7izHQ//Cdj3xJPbnmXWPxa5//vW p9KLdMl5pYIj/h+ENq7l08nmIsZ0ub7gJZPn2XOF6ywyzKJcX5Pg1oU8jQWdUh3L MDUbsZewUz/uubJDG+cawop9hUK0YCazV5DQ8B7niQlR8YNvDBItlsr6yicq4Tkx 9OFPLXZKC/qG0JTGoOyEYcSdFIHN+4R9SFow8twLnUH5BnMHRS0Qc4Pv1TkaW29Y y5Sosf/zt8NWMzBicyXZXnOBSeIhWEobJev2wOgFyFxlp9+HKwzMW4s4iB7ZfKjX MAVRGwMjwwqCKUa2usj3BANuIYj8Lb5TKkt1r+2eWysromOIi8J6Z+BTiI/NKdYu QB9KakEPzPaiL+/uSrVC =OgTi -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
