	Yeah. Actually, I left that in there on purpose. I spend hours and
hours doing release management of Bugzilla for absolutely free. The only
small compensation that I receive is the signature in the announcements.

	I used to remove it, because I agreed with you. However, I think it
doesn't hurt to slightly recompense me for the amount of time that I put
into the release process, without which we may never have released
anything starting with 2.18 onward.
