Oh, no worries, so have I and it's not at all clear whether I would've 
had time to get things rolling by before now even if the feature had 
been already processed.

I had no idea what kind of entity the wrangler is :) Since it's just a 
single person, perhaps there should be a backup wrangler? I mean, we all 
get preoccupied every now and then, go on vacations etc.
