You are right, I agree most of the code is not covered by teams. Perhaps fixes 
for code covered by Teams should be teams primary responsibility (to the 
point the team saying: accept this fix, reject this fix), the harvesting team 
would be the team responsible for the rest (uncovered) code. The harvesting 
team would harvest all accepted fixes. This probably does not coincide with 
KLeith's process very well though...

I still cannot reach Mantis, but from what I remember, on Mantis, the 
categories essentially (broadly) coincide with "class packages". Would it 
make sense for someone knowledgeable to take a list of teams, and assign each 
team a list of categories on Mantis, (the rest of the Mantic categories would 
be for the harvestors to take care of) - or perhaps is that self-evident ... 
I am just looking to document this process to a degree...
