My perspective, it is a success. We are better at disseminating information  
about ongoing reported issues.

Timewise, it did not waste more than an hour per day for me, usually less.  
The trick I use is subscribing to all comments in all neutron bugs in LP.  
That way I don’t need to rely on UI to get the list of bugs reported during  
me on duty.

The thing I would like us to see enhanced is making sure that tags set to  
bugs are actively tracked by corresponding teams. Hint: in my case, I have  
some recurrent todo on each Fri to walk thru all ‘oslo’ bugs. I may do the  
same if/once we get ‘upgrade’ tag. It would be great to be able to  
subscribe to just specific tag for emails, but I don’t know whether it’s  
possible in LP.

So kudos for setting the process and thanks everyone involved so far,
