last email, and then i'm going to bed (really, me, i promise!). i added
a bugzilla flag called "blocking4.2". flags have three states: "?",
"-", and "+". normal users can set "?" if they'd like to request that a
bug get the particular flag. a dev can change the flag to "+"
(confirm) or "-" (deny). i'm not exactly sure who has permissions to
actually confirm or deny flags, so if you need such permission and don't
have it, give me a holler.
on a side note, can we _please_ have http://bugs.xfce.org/ aliased to
bugzilla's vhost before we do any kind of release?
