That is something we need to deal with, eventually.  Having escalated
privileges associated with people no longer involved with the project
is bad for security. (Wasn't the vector of the last hack of the Apache
website via a XSS attack of bug tracking admin accounts?)

Remember, we can always add permissions back for someone if they did
not see and respond to this note.

Another option is to generate a report of all ID's with elevated
privileges and have that sent to ooo-private where we can decide next
