I was kidding with the patch-set comment Pat, but it's good to know
where you stand on this issue.

But in general for CGL, your point is very valid and I will repeat the
recommendation to Julie and Mika to put this on the agenda for the next
requirements meeting (when Mika is back) to discuss the viability of
actually pulling some project maintainers of the top 10 or 20 P1
projects into the realm of CGL.

I'm interested in everyone's thoughts on this.
