Przemyslaw Frasunek has PR's posted but none recent. IMO if a PR is not
submitted then one has *not* informed the Powers That Be. Having said
that, for all I know there is a PR in the system that has been given
restricted access until its dealt with. IIRC there is an option where
one may request privacy when submitting a PR, perhaps that is the case

Why is this in -questions? Seems -chat is more appropriate.
