Manoj and I are only two people. Handling policy bugs is hard for a
number of reasons:
(1) There are a lot of them, and many of them are now quite long.
(2) We don't have any official editorial rights, so unless a proposal
has been seconded in the standard way, it's difficult to figure
out what to do with it.
I asked a week or so ago for help in handling this sort of stuff, but
only one offer has been forthcoming.
