Along with this - I created the patch months ago that is sitting in the
test instance to block priority/severity from being changed by
"non-contributors." Beluga and I put in some time adding all devs and QA
members (or at least the vast majority) to a new group in bugzilla so
that they will have the rights without requesting. At this point I'm
just waiting for Robinson to give me some feedback as to what the hold
up is.

@Robinson - if texting is easier than IRC or email - feel free to text
me with suggestions for times that we can push this change once and for
all. I have 3 more that I intend on making but I want to wait until this
one is done before doing more.
