I see that this has been announced now, but I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway
- I've actually come to find the wiki drafting useful because there's a
template for the MIR wiki page and there's no template for writing the bug
report, so for me MIR writing is mostly in-place editing of a checklist...
so I find the wiki template to be a very useful framework.
I suppose if I find that the new process is slowing me down, I can always
continue using the MIR template as an exercise? :)
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
