Not only that, *Gerv* did it -- see bug 13540! :-)

Perhaps I had just never seen things this way. I'll be more precise in
the future.

I'm doing some massive snippage here, but I just want to make clear that
the problems you feel with the process are alike the the ones I perceive
-- I actually wrote to the list about this a while back; about how
participating in an OSS project should be fun, and how we usually fail
that that in Bugzilla.

Our worst problem is definitely the lack of reviewers -- it turns all
other minor snags with the process catastrophes. Able reviewers who can
take the time to sit down and stare at patches for hours are rare, and
it's been hard nurturing more to come along. I'm all for streamlining
that process, and if you have any ideas that can foster reviewers coming
on-board, I'd be happy to listen to them.

Take care,
