7 We've got this available already.
8 The bug to track permissions is here:
10 Ask the developer who is proxying for you to please file a bug to
11 devrel, and they will update that tracking page when they grant you
12 editbugs privileges.

18 I've wondered before about giving privileges based on the summary line,
19 but I haven't given it much thought beyond that. I think that would

21 actually mail aliases with user accounts in Bugzilla.
