There's no need to rely on the FSF assignment clerk for tracking this
process: you can ask me to do that instead.  I see all the steps of
this process in my email inbox anyway, whether I want it or not.

In general, people who bump into bureaucratic impediments related to
GNU or FSF should ask for help.  Making this better/easier is part of
my and John's duties, and we have access to resources others don't.
You shouldn't need to try to solve these problems alone.

FWIW, I don't want this to be handled via debbugs, as debbugs is
terribly unhelpful in little things that sometimes just make me mad.
Having to cope with it for handling bug reports is bad enough.
