You haven't needed a FAS account to leave a comment in bodhi for a long
time... possibly from the get-go.  Look at a potential update in bodhi
without logging in.  There's an add comment link that asks you for an
email address, comment, and a captcha to fill in.  (Although I have
found in testing just now that anonymous commenting is currently
broken... have to find out from lmacken what's going on there.)
