Thanks to some recent work by chromatic++, dukeleto++, cotto++, and
others, the RT queue is now down to 70 tickets.

Here's the current assignment breakdown:

Whiteknight: 4
pmichaud: 1
petdance: 2
particle: 5
jnthn at jnthn.net: 2
infinoid: 3
cotto: 2
coke: 4
chromatic: 3
allison: 5

Unassigned: 39 tickets. Of those, a majority are just TODO/XXX
comments that were converted to tickets; these should be simple to
transfer without having to understand/summarize the issues in the
ticket (following the guidelines earlier in the thread.)

For those with commit bits looking to clean things up, we also need to
eventually remove some of the RT references in the repository.

Any ticket that is TODO needs to have a live TT; if it refers to a
migrated RT, please change the pointer in the code.

If the RT reference is to a resolved issue (for example, a regression
that was fixed but still references the ticket the regression was
opened under), we don't need to transfer that ticket to RT: We're
assuming that RT will be available to us for historical usage.

Any references in the docs should be of the form "RT #foo" or "TT
#bar" (probably all of them are right now.).
