*shrug*. There has previously been a lot of talk about infrastructure work
flow (really, years of it). I started out at some point to help build a
tool for handling these kinds of requests but it fell by the wayside since
there weren't enough people to help and I ran out of steam. Someone from
infrastructure first sent email about the kind of webapp needed to
committers@ a few years ago but no-one ever stepped up to the plate to build
it and finish it.

Jira has been evaluated for handling this kind of stuff. We do use it for
mailing list requests but not for accounts. Security, accountability,
stability, traceability, shell-based workflow, etc etc. All this is

The right list for discussing this kind of stuff is infrastructure@a.o. In
any case, the people who do the work get to make these decisions, and they
say to use email :-)
