I'll try a more formal approach to the release team than just CC'ing them. 	

Also I would appreciate your view on #512964. Once we are past this 
upgrade I intend to apply it - unless someone objects. If the consensus

Also I intend to offer an opinion on #590905 that you will certainly 
want to comment on.
