ciaranm is completely correct here...  releng has no control over the
tree.  The only thing that we maintain is our own tools, and a few
packages which belong to the LiveCD herd.  While we do quite a bit of
testing to ensure things work smoothly, we have to file bugs and poke
other developers to get things fixed, just like anybody else would.
