Right. That's all that I meant. Later on you say "Don't ask me to
write down the list"...I guess what I'm asking is if it would be
useful to have the list for some more of the core modules. There is a
certain responsibility in that case to look at patches for a
particular core module, and then it is known by those people. e.g.
James knows that he has to personally look at all Blog API bugs/
Just as now, any that you feel don't have maintainers (i.e. people
with enough trust to be responsible for them) still fall into the
everybody looks at them/needs to +1 them. Or, of course, ones that
you want to maintain yourself.
