Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Do we want contributors assigning to themselves?
Date Fri, 16 May 2014 00:45:35 GMT

continue to assign things as they see fit.

Their contributor status implies that they are at least somewhat 
acclimated with our processes and that they have a positive opinion of 
the project.
