As far as I can tell one cannot set NEEDINFO on that account (or, it
might just be that my account on Red Hat's bugzilla instance lacks
that privilege) . Which is a compounded issue when the actual set of
developers working on the component do not reassign the reported bug
to an individual. I understand the point about decentralization - but
at the end of the day, the bugs are mostly to be addressed by an
actual human. Not a mailing list alias account.
