Description Chris Jerdonek 2009-12-13 13:10:16 PST
I tried contacting the individual listed on the WebKit bug life cycle page (see the URL for the report) using the e-mail address listed there.  But the e-mail address no longer works.  I have also heard that he hasn't been involved for a couple years.

I would also like to clarify a few things on this page while making the change, for example--

- Generally speaking, who has Bugzilla "canConfirm" privileges?
- Once a bug is out of UNCONFIRMED status, can anyone set the 
  "Assigned To" field (both from a permissions perspective and 
  from an etiquette perspective)?
- Before starting work on an UNCONFIRMED bug, what's the most 
  efficient way of going about getting an UNCONFIRMED bug 
  assigned to you (assuming you do not have "canConfirm" 
- Finally, the bug life cycle page says this, "Each bug is 
  initially assigned to the person designated as owner of the 
  component."  But most new bugs in WebKit I see have assignee 
  "webkit-unassigned". Does the WebKit project have a concept 
  of owner?
