That is a curious statement, considering that:

- committers are not automatically subscribed to ooo-private.

- committers are not automatically list moderators.  They need to request it.

- committers are not automatically blog editors.  They need to request it.

- committers are not automatically wiki editors or admins.  They need
to request it.

- committers are not automatically forum editors or admins.  They need
to request it.

So far as I can tell, the only thing that happens automatically for
committers is SVN access. And even that is not really automatic.

Given the above, I had no expectations that Bugzilla access for
committers would happen without request.  Do you have a reason to be
optimistic in this case?

And are you suggesting we wait for this to happen?  Or would it make
more sense to get a few volunteers, per my original note, and go
forward with that for now?
