Yes only me. I will ask about permissions at Infra.

In the meantime, if there is something specific
to be done, then just give me instructions.

I had a quick go today, but don't have much time.

I gather (not Jira expert) that we can configure our
own schemes for various things.

I created our own "Field Configuration" and
"Field Configuration Scheme" and set Component to be
required. Also tweaked some of the field descriptions.

Perhaps we should look at other projects such as Cocoon
and get ideas for enhancing ours. Jira is immensely
configurable. Anyway, now that we have our own config,
we can do whatever we want.
