14 considering you're getting this now, i dont see how it'd be any different if
15 things were merged. if you really dont like bugs being assigned directly,
16 then simply make the default go to the wranglers and let them sort it out.
18 if anything, the current poor productization is causing people to just go to
19 Documentation and select anything they like which makes them all go to docs-
20 team@g.o.
22 personally, i dont think "i dont like bugs being assigned to me" is a good
23 enough reason to force this confusion onto end users.

38 no it isnt. current setup:
39 Product: Translations -> Component: [lang]
40 proposed setup:
41 Product: Documentation -> Component: Translations
42 or even:
43 Product: Documentation -> Component: trans/[lang]
