Ok, I have drafted a section about this in the gobby for a d-d-a mail
covering this (among other).  Please consider reviewing it:


I intend to submit this next week and make 29-30/9 the first weekend to

At the moment, I have no plans to change the urgency=high exemption as a
part of this change.  However, I am happy to review/accept patches for
#831699 now or in the future (which I believe is the issue you are
referring too).  Though, the prerequisite(s) for solving that bug lies
outside Britney.
