Correct.  Bill is not the blocker on the
fix-the-author-to-be-not-eric at webkit.org-in-postcommit-patch.  The
blocker how fast I'm able to pop items off my work queue.  I'm happy

The plan was detailed here:

I just filed https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38870
If anyone would like to lead that to completion, I'm happy to pass it off.
