Sure, assign it away.

In general, I am not sure what my exact role is going to be, as it seems 
IBM may be picking up this glove, and they have a month and a half and 
two men fore on me (not to mention full time vs. off hours).

If you do assign it, use "winebugzilla.at.sun.consumer.org.il" as my 
email address, please.
