Sent the prior one way too soon (GMail keyboard shortcuts did that for me :) ).

Or a release note, or anything else really.  We are not the only
distribution that requires signing an agreement in order to gain full
access to triage bugs[1].  In fact, Ubuntu's requirements are much
more onerous than ours.  We basically say cla_done and you're in.
They obviously have a whole different set of requirements.

Correct.  At the 1/24 meeting[2], there was quite lively discussion of
this.  It was decided that for now we would require cla_done, and
revisit when FAS2 comes around.

Agreed.  I'm just the messenger :)
