Was a consensus reached on this in the end ?
As I understand it the reason why these are all assigned is so that
either warp or acid2 give estimates, but I bet the estimates for many of
these tasks is very very rough and will turn out to very inaccurate.
Other way to do this would have ruaok estimate new ones
and only assign a few issues at a time, whereby the estimates could be
refined by the devloper as and when work starts on them.
Compare this with Lucene which has a similar setup of a few more or
less fulltime developers and then another load of developers who dip in
from time to time.
The most issues any individual has is 21, they also have a user
called 'Lucene-Devlopers', seems like a group of some sort I wonder
what its purpose is.
