I'm not sure what you're talking about. I am referring to


which were all assigned to me (I've reassigned them since). And I think 
I've made my intentions clear in this post:

If you wish to do that, I can't stop you. Just be aware that I have no 
plans and intentions to join that team. And please, stop assigning these 
bugs to me.

Bad idea. ToolBuilder is a framework, the tools are an application. You 
don't reassign framework people to any specific application (not as long 
as you want the framework be usable outside of that application).
