I only plan to make changes once we have consensus on the mailing
list. It's probably easiest to use the issue tracker to distribute the
existing bugs among the three editors. If we find that over time the
distribution becomes unbalanced, we can discuss offline about how to
improve the collaboration, but I don't think that is a big worry at
this point.
