Moshe didn't see the drop-box because his permissions didn't include
assigning patches.  I've fixed this (as a policy, we give everyone
with checkin permissions tech&admin permissions for the patch manager,
but that's not the SF default, so it must be done manually).  This is
the second or third post from a new SF developer asking about this.
We really need to set up our own SF FAQ soon!
