Right now, most Bugzilla components are *actually* unowned, even though they say they're owned by justdave. Instead, we should do like Mozilla has, and have things like firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, people could watch certain components, and it wouldn't look like things were actually being worked on. Their names can still be "nobody's working on this, feel free to take it". :-)
ok, this is done with my components except for the ones I'm actively (or should be actively) participating in.
Cool! :-) I suspect that myk will at least want to set the "UI" component to "email@example.com" or something like that, and maybe a few other of his components, also...? (Myk?) :-) I think another important thing that we should do is triage the current bugs that are assigned to you, justdave, and re-assign them to firstname.lastname@example.org. :-) I think that we can probably assume that if anything is UNCONFIRMED, you are probably not personally working on it, so we can probably mass-change those.

That's probably a safe assumption.
From the developers list: "Right. You can do this for all my components except UI as well, since I haven't been strongly owning the others for a while now. -myk"
OK, Myk's are done. The only other components I see that this should probably be done to are Zach's....
Generally, I'm not a big fan of using firstname.lastname@example.org type owners since it eliminates any sense of ownership at all. On the whole, I think some ownership is better then no ownership, no matter what form it takes. While I clearly have not been much of an owner in recent times, that's a subject for an upcoming blog post and I'll address that as a separate issue. That being said, if you want to do my components, feel free.
zach -- I'd like checksetup to have an email@example.com assignee, so that I could watch it and you could also watch it. Then we could take the bugs that we were actually going to work on. There could be basically two default assignees instead of one, basically.
This is done for the components that it applies to.
