I can appreciate your frustration ... docs are caught in the squeeze at
the very end. Here are a couple suggestions:

1) Set up a Jira filter that mails you a daily report of doc issues,
perhaps sorted by most recent activity if that's possible (maybe Jira
experts can jump in with specific suggestions).

2) If somebody opens a new doc issue and thinks it needs your urgent
attention, I see no problem with them forwarding a copy of the notice to
you offlist with a "wanted to make sure you saw this". I'll do that.

thanks for all the doc work -- we really appreciate it!
