  • Keywords bg|has-patch bg|commit added; bg|2nd-opinion removed
  • Owner changed from graeme to markjaquith
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Final decision was that wordpress@domain is best, because admin email might be from off-domain and might be more likely to get flagged as spam at its destination.
