My understanding is that it wasn't assigned until late.

It feels quite cheap and useful to send an email to the list for
coordination to save many working hours. Even because it's often the
case that we may have input about how to solve the problem.

It assigns, puts in progress, and targets to the current milestone. It
does the same for existing bugs too, with -bug <n>.

That said, this isn't useful unless an empty branch is pushed with
"lbox propose -prep" at the start of the task. If the branch is ready,
then it's too late.
