Indeed. Many people have. We discussed this stuff a lot during AC EU. The
existing infra team doesn't feel like rash changes (which is a Smart Stance
To Take and deserves Community Support) so we're taking baby steps along a
similar path. You can help us take those steps.

Hrmpf. There's actually a few concrete requests in jira for help. There's
been one for years (with detailed specs and all) regarding CLA/user account
handling automation, which was even sent to committers@ at some point
(yielding a total of 0 volunteers at that time). Everyone is welcome to
submit patches to

  https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/apworkflow/

(really cool stuff! Python+subversion based web application with wiki-like
functionality! Several page todo list! Everyone come out and play!) And
you're likely to get write karma at the first sign of a second useful patch.

Its *part* of the solution :-)

In any case, this ain't the mailing list for these discussions!

Cheers,
