So let's summarize for assigning to the single arch:

Against (and my comments on why they don't apply):
 - Comments would only go to arch team after resolving:
  * maintainer is still in Cc or Reporter
 - Arch teams not in charge of fixing problems
  * If problems come up they deserve a new bug as a dependency
  * one bug per issue and a stabilization bug is about stabilization
 - Maintainer being able to decide when to go stable
  * Bug wranglers should still assign to maintainers for their ack
  * The maintainer assigns it to the arch team

In support (and my comments in support):
 - Can be used as a gentle reminder for slacker arches
 - The arch teams are actually ones doing the work to resolve the bug
  * As they are the ones to mark it as resolved it makes sense for them
    to be the assignees

So based on this I propose that I will write this down in appropriate
places in to our documentation and commit a week from now. Please object
if you don't agree and we can discuss some more.

Regards,
Petteri
