Often things sort out by themselves!

Ok, I guess that has not been clear enough. The "Action needed" field
would be only used by the OLPCA team. The release manager would be here
the release manager for the OLPCA release. At the moment Daniel for the
11.2.0 release. Of course we could try to generalize this a bit more but
I think this will get tricky quickly. To help making the distinction a
bit better we could label the field as well "Action needed (OLPC)" or

Same here. This would be Sam triaging the bugs accordingly.

Thanks for commenting and helping me to explain, hopefully, a bit clearer,
