As someone who has been assigned some patches that are still open (isatty,
normpath fix, history functions for readline), I'm still pretty much in the
dark about what my rights and responsibilities are.  Am I supposed to
eyeball a patch and check it in if it looks okay (compiles, doesn't break
"make test", etc)?  Am I supposed to bring it up for discussion on
python-dev?  Something entirely different (blow up a bush, perhaps)?

I just submitted a feature request for the patch manager at SF.  I asked for 
the following:

    1. better selection/exclusion predicates for the filtering function
    2. filtering based on assignee/submitter
    3. display of a patch's state in the table
