He has, and Spot and I are working on the merge review issue with the
different Red Hat teams internally.  We've given the team managers a
number of different options to consider, and right now Spot's in the
process of locating a selection of packages we can concentrate on to
make some progress.  We're trying to balance out our desire to get
these merge reviews completed with the fact that most of the engineers
in question labor under a constant, heavy workload that includes a
great deal of maintenance work for RHEL 4 and 5.
