I actually think in general the juju team has been pretty good at
attaching branches to bugs and making it quite clear when they are
working on a bug. The In Progress status would have been clearer, but
IMO, when there's a branch linked to a bug, its best to go examine that
branch before proceeding.

I don't think announcing on this list is necessary for coordination.. but
I do think everybody should be more careful to assign bugs to themselves
before working on them.

One aside, Gustavo, does lpad automatically assign the bugs it creates
to the creator?
